Tattenham Corner railway station is in Surrey, in England. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Southern, and it is the terminus of the Tattenham Corner Line. London-bound trains head south as far as Tadworth, then turn east and finally north.

It lies on the outskirts of Epsom and is the closest station for Epsom Downs Racecourse, where the Derby is held. It is where Queen Elizabeth II alights from the British Royal Train on race days.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service is two trains an hour to London Bridge via East Croydon and one train an hour to Purley. In the evenings the trains run to London Victoria, which is also served by some morning and evening peak services.

From 2018 as part of the Thameslink Programme the services will be operated with larger 12 car trains offering all day direct services to places like Cambridge.[3]
