Tolworth railway station in the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames in South London, is a station on the Chessington branch 12.08 mi (19.44 km) south west of London Waterloo. The station is part of the London suburban network of South West Trains and is in Travelcard Zone 5.

The station, like all others on the branch, is built in the art deco style of the 1930s using concrete arcs for canopies; it was opened, as the original terminus of the branch, on 29 May 1938.
