New Holland Pier railway station was a station north of the village of New Holland in North Lincolnshire, England. It was situated at the northern end of the Great Grimsby and Sheffield Junction Railway and formed a connection with the ferry to Kingston upon Hull.
The station was at the seaward end of the 1,375 feet (419 m) New Holland Pier.
The station was opened on 1 March 1848 as the northern terminus of the Great Grimsby and Sheffield Junction Railway from New Holland to Grimsby Town, with trains using the pier from the first day. It was closed and the ferry withdrawn on 24 June 1981 on the same day that the Humber Bridge opened. New Holland pier was taken over by New Holland Bulk Services who started a grain and feed import and export business in 1984.
Both New Holland Pier and New Holland Town stations were replaced by a new New Holland railway station in 1981.
