Cowden railway station is on the Uckfield branch of the Oxted line in southern England and serves Cowden in Kent. It is 29 miles 26 chains (47.19 km) from London Bridge. The station is managed by Southern.
The station was destaffed in the 1990s. When the line was singled in 1990 the "up" platform was taken out of use and all trains now use the former "down" platform. The track is not electrified, so only diesel or steam trains can run.
In 1994 a serious accident occurred just south of the station.
