Cuffley railway station serves the village of Cuffley in the Welwyn Hatfield district in Hertfordshire. It also serves other nearby settlements, namely Goffs Oak, Northaw and the west of Cheshunt. 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).

The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Great Northern.

Train services[edit]

The service runs to Moorgate via Highbury & Islington. The service uses class 313 EMUs, as these are the only units cleared to Moorgate.

The typical off-peak weekday service is 3 trains per hour to Moorgate, and to Hertford North; one per hour to the latter continues to Letchworth Garden City via Stevenage.[1]

At weekends, the service is half-hourly to Hertford North and Moorgate & hourly extensions northbound to Stevenage. Southbound trains no longer serve Kings Cross on weeknights after 22.00 or weekends since the December 2015 timetable change.
