History[edit]

Designed by David Field in 1858 and opened by the Epsom and Leatherhead Railway, part of the London and South Western Railway, it became a joint station between that railway and the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway and was absorbed into the Southern Railway by the grouping of 1923. The station passed to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the privatisation of British Rail.

The main ticket office building was rebuilt in 2013.
