Adisham railway station is on the Dover branch of the Chatham Main Line in England, and serves the village of Adisham, Kent. It is 67 miles 60 chains (109.0 km) down-line from London Victoria and is situated between Bekesbourne and Aylesham.

The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.

There are brick buildings on the country-bound platform, formerly in railway use but now privately occupied, and a wooden shelter on the London-bound platform. The country-bound platform is accessible by road and the London-bound by public footpath. There is a connecting footbridge.

The station is unstaffed. There is a help point on each platform, electronic departure boards were added in May 2016 and a ticket machine (accepting credit/debit cards) in October the same year.

History[edit]

The station and the line it serves were built by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway, and opened on 22 July 1861, becoming part of the Southern Railway during the grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948 until the privatisation of British Railways.

When sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Network SouthEast.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is one train per hour to London Victoria via Chatham and Bromley South, and one train per hour to Dover Priory.
