Burnham-on-Crouch railway station is on the Crouch Valley Line in the East of England, serving the town of Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex. It is 43 miles 24 chains (69.7 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Althorne to the east and Southminster, the eastern terminus of the line. Its three-letter station code is BUU. It is located near the Mangapps Railway Museum.

The station was opened by the Great Eastern Railway in 1889. The line and station were passed to the London and North Eastern Railway following the Grouping of 1923. It then passed to the Eastern Region of British Railways upon nationalisation in 1948. When sectorisation was introduced, Burnham-on-Crouch was served by Network South East until the privatisation of British Railways.

Today the station is managed by Abellio Greater Anglia, which also operates all trains serving it. The typical off-peak service is of one westbound train every 40 minutes to Wickford and one eastbound train every 40 minutes to Southminster, with additional services at peak times. Some peak services continue to or from Shenfield and/or London Liverpool Street via the Great Eastern Main Line.
