Kempton Park railway station in Sunbury-on-Thames in Surrey is on the Shepperton branch line, 16 miles 26 chains (26.3 km) down the line from London Waterloo. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South Western Railway. Access is from the front car park of Kempton Park Racecourse.

Kempton Park is only around 600 metres (660 yd) from Sunbury station, the shortest distance between two stations on the line. Until June 2006 it opened only for event days at Kempton Park Racecourse; since then, following the increase in racing days and after consultation with the Jockey Club, it has had stopping services every day.[1]

Services[edit]

The week-day off-peak service is two trains an hour to London Waterloo via Kingston and two trains an hour to Shepperton; the first up train to stop at Kempton Park is at 09:17, a few hours after the first up train runs through the station. The first up service on Saturday and on Sunday is at 06:17 and 07:18 respectively. The Sunday service is one train an hour each way.

None of the branch peak-hour services via Richmond stops at Kempton Park.
