Seacroft railway station was a station in Seacroft, Lincolnshire.[1][2] The line it was on, between Boston and Skegness is still open, but the station was shut due to poor use - the station being located slightly outside the village.

The station was opened on 28 July 1873 and originally called Cow Bank, but was renamed to Seacroft on 1 October 1900. Passenger services were withdrawn 7 December 1953 and the station was closed to goods on 27 April 1964.
