Darsham is a railway station which serves the villages of Darsham and Yoxford in Suffolk, England, lying midway between the two communities, each of which is about one mile from the station. It is located on the East Suffolk Line exactly half the journey time between Lowestoft and Ipswich (45 minutes). All trains are operated by Abellio Greater Anglia, who also manage the station.

The station house is owned by Darsham Country Centre[1] a subsidiary of the Woodcraft Folk[2] and is run as a residential centre for youth groups. The station is located on the A12 and also has a taxi service, ideal for the nearby coastal resorts of Southwold and Walberswick.
