Hurstbourne railway station served the village of Hurstbourne Priors in Hampshire, England. It was on the London and South Western Railway's West of England Main Line and was also the junction for the Fullerton to Hurstbourne Line, though trains for the Fullerton line started and stopped at Whitchurch, the next station to the east on the main line.

Passengers services were withdrawn on the Fullerton to Hurstbourne line in 1931, but Hurstbourne remained open for stopping services between Basingstoke and Andover until 1964, when it closed. The site is now occupied by a scrap metal dealer.[2]
