The station opened as Marden Park in 1885, one year after the line opened, with one waiting shelter and named after the manor in the west of Woldingham and north-east of Godstone. The line was relatively late in the history of the railways due to the amount of earth-moving and chalk extraction required. The adjacent Station Lodge is at 128 metres (420 ft) above sea level (Ordnance Datum) and path below the viaduct immediately to the north is at 122 metres, as the track ascends the remainder of the cutting and immediately south of the station enters a cutting. A tunnel follows to the south of approximately 1 mile (1.6 km). It was renamed Woldingham in 1984.
The East Grinstead (or Oxted) Line is by early 20th century settled convention a stopping service south of East Croydon and is a fast service north of this, in London, having suburban service specialisation.
The typical off-peak service in trains per hour is:
On the southbound platform, there is a self-service ticket machine, and a manned ticket office (staffed for part of the day, not Sundays)
A car park extension north of the station is equipped with a new Metric Aura ticket machine.
