Shoreham railway station serves Shoreham in Kent, England. Train services are provided by Southeastern.

The ticket office here was closed c 1992, having been manned only during part of the day; these days, a PERTIS passenger-operated ticket machine issues 'Permits to Travel' - which are exchanged on-train or at manned stations for travel tickets - and is located on the Ashford-bound platform.

The platforms are connected by a concrete footbridge - a typical product of the Southern Railway concrete factory at Exmouth Junction. There is a small car park (free) at the entrance to the station.
