Sandhurst railway station is a railway station in the town of Sandhurst in Berkshire, England. The station is managed by First Great Western, who operate services on the North Downs Line from Reading to Guildford, Redhill and Gatwick Airport. The station is 11 1⁄2 miles (18.5 km) south east of Reading.
Sandhurst Station has two platforms: Platform 1 for services towards Gatwick Airport and Platform 2 for services towards Reading. The station is unstaffed and has an enquiries and emergencies telephone situated at the bottom of Platform 1. The station uses LED-based live departure boards and audio announcements for reporting arrivals and delays to commuters.
A temporary station on this site existed between 1852 and 1853 but it was not until 1909 that the station opened permanently as 'Sandhurst Halt'. In around 1918, there were proposals to site a replacement station and goods yard a 1/4 of a mile northwards along the route, but seemingly, these never came to fruition.
Sandhurst is served by trains approximately every 60 minutes in each direction Monday to Saturday, and every two hours on Sundays. There are additional trains during peak periods on weekdays. Most trains operate between Reading and Redhill via Guildford.
