Brookmans Park railway station serves the village of Brookmans Park in Hertfordshire, England. The station is located 14 miles 37 chains (23.3 km) north of London Kings Cross on the East Coast Main Line, on the stretch between Finsbury Park and Hatfield.
In Autumn 2008, a Shere self-service ticket machine was installed opposite the booking office window, replacing an earlier Avantix self-service machine.
The station has four platforms in total, two island platforms on both sides, but only platforms 1 & 4 are used regularly, platforms 2 & 3 are only used during line disruption or engineering work. The west side serves northbound services and another island platform serving southbound services which lies to the east. The station car park parallels the island platforms to the east.
The platforms are reached by a steep footbridge, the station building (an LNER survivor) being a part-time booking office at the NW extremity of the station.

Great Northern stopping
There is a basic weekday off-peak service of 3tph in both directions, southbound to Moorgate and northbound to Welwyn Garden City. This drops to every half-hour at weekends. Late evening & weekend services used to run to and from Kings Cross rather than using the Northern City Line, but from 13 December 2015 Great Northern introduced a weekend service on the line and extended evening hours until the end of service.
