Haslemere railway station is on the Portsmouth Direct Line, serving the town of Haslemere, Surrey, England. It is 42 miles 79 chains (69.2 km) down the line from London Waterloo, measured via Woking.
The large car park (to the south) and industrial estate (to the north) were originally large goods sidings. Platform 3 is an addition to the original structure, built in 1938 when the line was electrified. Until then, Haslemere was just a standard wayside station, but it became steadily busier as commuter traffic from the surrounding countryside grew. There are now four trains an hour to London Waterloo station, two of them express services.
The adjoining bridge (Foster's Bridge) over Lower Street was originally built as a two-track brick arch, but was widened later with a metal girder section.
Since June 2008, a new footbridge with lifts provides disabled access to platforms 2 and 3.
In December 2016, the station received a new decked car park, which added significant parking space at the station.
It is the only station on the Portsmouth Direct Line between Guildford and Havant to have more than two platforms. Platform 3 is used to allow northbound fast services to overtake stopping services. Platform 2 (generally up line) also receives termination of trains.
