Tooting is a railway station in the London Borough of Merton, south London; it is within Travelcard Zone 3. The station is served by Thameslink and (occasional) Southern trains, and is on the Sutton Loop Line.

The station opened in 1894 as Tooting Junction, replacing an earlier station of the same name but slightly further west that had opened in 1868. It was renamed Tooting in 1938, following the closure of the branch line from Tooting to Merton Park to passenger traffic in 1929.
