Hatton railway station takes the name of the village of Hatton in Warwickshire, England, although it is about 1 mile (1.6 km) from the village. The nearest settlement is Little Shrewley. The station is managed by Chiltern Railways. Most trains calling here are those provided by Chiltern on its London Marylebone/Leamington Spa/Birmingham Snow Hill/Kidderminster and London Marylebone/Leamington Spa/Stratford routes, but these are augmented by a few London Midland services.

Hatton is the junction station at which the lines from Leamington Spa to Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham diverge. The station is unstaffed; ticketing is restricted to a 'Permit-to-Travel' machine located at the single entrance to the station on the London-bound (southbound) platform. There is a small shelter on the southbound platform 1 and also one on the island platform (platform 2 for Birmingham-bound services and platform 3 for stations to Stratford upon Avon which bear to the west immediately north of the station. A footbridge links platform 1 with island platform 2/3).

Each platform at the station is equipped with a real-time electronic information departure screen.

Services[edit]

The station is served primarily by the Chiltern Railways two-hourly Birmingham Moor Street to Leamington Spa local service and the two-hourly Leamington Spa to Stratford-Upon-Avon service during Monday-Saturday daytimes. The base pattern is however enhanced at peak times, with extra calls by Snow Hill - Marylebone trains, and London Midland stopping services between Leamington Spa and Stourbridge Junction/Kidderminster. On Sundays, there is one train per hour to Leamington & London and every two hours to Stratford and Birmingham.[1]
