Harrietsham station opened on 1 July 1884 as part of the London, Chatham and Dover Railway's extension of the line from Maidstone to Ashford West. The goods yard was on the up side. It comprised three sidings, one of which served a goods shed. Freight facilities were withdrawn on 1 May 1961. The signal box closed on 5 November 1972.
The ticket office is manned only during the morning peak period; at other times a PERTIS 'permit to travel' machine, located at the entrance to the up platform, suffices.
There is also a peak hour service via Thameslink across London, serving City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras International before travelling onto Bedford.
