Farningham Road railway station is on the Chatham Main Line in England, serving the villages of Farningham, Sutton-at-Hone, Horton Kirby and South Darenth, Kent. It is 20 miles 41 chains (33.0 km) down-line from London Victoria and is situated between Swanley and Longfield.

The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.

The ticket office, on the 'up' (London-bound) side, is situated in the substantial station building. This is manned only during part of the day; at other times a PERTIS passenger-operated ticket machine issues permits to travel, which are exchanged on-train or at manned stations for travel tickets, and is located on the 'down' (country-bound) platform.

The railway line was electrified as part of Southern Railway's "Maidstone & Gillingham Electrification" scheme of July 1939.[1][2] The station was previously named Farningham Road & Sutton-at-Hone.
