Originally simply Hyde, it was built by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, opening in 1858 as a branch from its main line through Penistone to Sheffield. From 1862, the branch was extended to New Mills to meet the Midland Railway's extension of its line from Millers Dale. For a while, it saw Midlands expresses from London. In 1875, however, a new more direct route was built through Bredbury.
The substantial station buildings were demolished in 1980, with a new booking office at street level commissioned in their place.
Hyde Central is served by a half-hourly weekday and Saturday service either way between Manchester Piccadilly and Rose Hill Marple. The frequency drops to hourly after 19:00 and there is no service after 22:00. There is no Sunday service.
In July 2020, Northern informed local residents that services between Manchester and Rose Hill Marple will not operate between early September and mid December 2020. This will leave Rose Hill, Woodley and Hyde North, as well as Hyde Central, without service for around four months.
