Brislington railway station was a railway station in Brislington, a suburb of Bristol, England.

The station on the Bristol and North Somerset Railway opened in 1873. It closed to passengers in 1959 and to goods traffic in 1963.[1][2] The site is off Talbot Road, close to the junction with the A4 Bath Road, and is used as a scrap metal yard. Parts of the platforms remain in place, although no buildings survive.
