Horncastle railway station was a station in Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England. It was at the end of a short branch line that ran from Woodhall Junction which opened on 11 August 1855. Like many fairly rural stations it was eventually shut as the rail network was cut back, with passenger trains ceasing on 12 September 1954 and goods and freight terminating on 5 April 1971.
The station building was demolished in the 1980s and the site is now occupied by Bush Tyres and by the Granary Way Housing Estate. One of the warehouses in the goods yard remains.
The track bed to Woodhall Spa survives as a long-distance footpath.
