Wye railway station serves Wye in Kent, England. The station, and all trains serving it, is operated by Southeastern.

The platforms are connected by a concrete footbridge - a typical product of the Southern Railway concrete factory at Exmouth Junction. There is a manned level crossing at the south end of the station.

The station is manned for part of the day. There is no passenger-operated ticket machine at this location. A PERTIS passenger-operated ticket machine issues 'Permit to Travel' tickets which are exchanged on-train or at manned stations for travel tickets. This is located on the Ashford-bound platform, by the footbridge.

Substantial station buildings on the Ashford-bound platform contain the booking office. There is a substantial shelter on the Canterbury-bound platform.
