Cuffley railway station serves the village of Cuffley in the Welwyn Hatfield district of Hertfordshire. It also serves other nearby settlements, namely Goffs Oak, Northaw and the west of Cheshunt. It is 13 miles 17 chains (21.26 km) down the line from London King's Cross on the Hertford Loop Line.
The station opened in 1910 on the Hertford Loop Line between Enfield Chase and Hertford North as Cuffley and Goff's Oak, with the suffix being dropped some time later. The opening of the station allowed Cuffley to expand as an attractive commuter village with regular services to London King's Cross, and Broad Street (replaced by Northern City Line trains to Moorgate in 1976). Cuffley was served by steam locomotives until 1960 when they were replaced by diesels; the line was electrified in 1976.
The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Great Northern.
At weekends, the service is half-hourly to Hertford North and Moorgate, with hourly extensions northbound to Stevenage. Southbound trains no longer serve King's Cross on weeknights after 22.00 or weekends since the December 2015 timetable change.
