Shepherds Well railway station serves Shepherdswell in Kent. It is served by Southeastern. It appears in the national railway timetable and in on line enquiry systems as Shepherds Well but the platform station signs say Shepherdswell. It is adjacent to the terminus of the East Kent heritage line, which is spelt as one word, Shepherdswell.

The booking office in the station building on the Dover-bound platform is open only for very limited hours on Mondays to Fridays mornings but a Permit To Travel ticket machine (also on the Dover-bound platform) caters for out-of-hours ticketing.

The mainline station and the line it serves were built by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is one train per hour to London Victoria via Chatham and Bromley South, and one train per hour to Dover Priory.
