Edenbridge railway station is one of two stations serving Edenbridge in Kent, England. It is 33 miles 3 chains (53.17 km) measured from London Charing Cross via Redhill. Train services are operated by Southern.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 26 May 1842.

In 1967 the station became unstaffed following which the original station buildings were demolished.

In 1993 the line was electrified and services started to run through to London rather than being an extension of the Reading to Redhill North Downs Line service.

In 2007, a PERTIS machine was installed at the street entrance to the Tonbridge-bound platform. This has since been replaced with a self-service ticket vending machine as common on larger stations. Until December 2008 Edenbridge station was operated by Southeastern before it transferred to Southern, whose green signage was installed before October 2008.
