Cuxton railway station is a railway station in the United Kingdom. It is located on the Medway Valley Line in the local government area of Medway, and it lies well to the east of the village of Cuxton.

Train services are provided by Southeastern. The station has been updated with new Southeastern signs and a new colour scheme (lilac with a dark blue stripe).

The APTIS-equipped ticket office, in an imposing building on the northbound platform, closed in September 1989; the building remains disused and is in poor condition although some efforts have been made in recent years to stem the decay and deter vandalism.

A PERTIS (Permit to Travel) ticket machine is located at the entrance to the northbound platform; this was installed in 2007.

Wooden level crossing gates are operated from the signalbox.[1]
