Cuxton railway station is on the Medway Valley Line in Kent, England, and lies well to the east of the village of Cuxton. It is 33 miles 36 chains (53.8 km) down the line from London Charing Cross via Strood and is situated between Strood and Halling. The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.

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]
