East Worthing railway station is an unstaffed railway station in Worthing in the county of West Sussex. It is 9 miles 55 chains (15.6 km) down the line from Brighton. The station is operated by Southern.

Built to serve the growing settlement at East Worthing, the station was opened in 1905 as Ham Bridge Halt, taking the name of the road bridge at the eastern end.[1]

The station has ticket issuing facilities through one Shere FASTticket self-service ticket machine on the eastbound platform. A Permit to travel machine is on the westbound platform. The station has one glass and metal shelter on each platform. In the early 1990s a small wooden ticket office building on the eastbound platform was demolished.

The platforms can only accommodate 4-coach trains. Until 2014 they were 2.25 m (7 ft 5 in) wide, preventing the use of access ramps for disabled passengers; but in January of that year work began to widen them to 3.75 m (12.3 ft).[2]

Services[edit]

On Sundays, one of the West Worthing services extend to Portsmouth Harbour and the other extends to Southampton Central.
