Grateley railway station serves the village of Grateley, Hampshire, England, and the surrounding countryside. It is 72 miles 49 chains (116.9 km) down the line from London Waterloo. It is operated by South Western Railway.
The station opened on 1 May 1857. It was built 3⁄4 mile (1.2 km) southwest of Grateley village, near the hamlet of Palestine, after the local landowner objected to it being built any closer. Since then, a new settlement has grown up around the station.
The station has few facilities and is unmanned. There is a self-service ticket machine on platform 1 and smartcard readers on both platforms. There are two car parks for the large number of commuters who use the station. Displays on each platform show the next two trains. All trains are operated by South Western Railway.
South Western Railway operates an hourly service between London Waterloo and Salisbury with limited extensions to Bristol Temple Meads, Exeter St Davids and Yeovil Pen Mill. A seasonal service runs once each way on a Saturday between Waterloo and Weymouth, operating from late May to early September.
Trains are once per hour each way on weekdays, then decreasing to once every two hours each way on Sundays.
