Acle railway station is on the Wherry Lines in the east of England, serving the town of Acle, Norfolk. It is 10 miles 34 chains (16.8 km) down the line from Norwich on the route to Great Yarmouth. Its three-letter station code is ACL.

The station has the only passing loop on the Acle branch of the line, and in times past there was a coaling depot.
