The station lies some three miles north of the village and is not within convenient walking distance of any sizeable population. However, there is a population of over 10,000 people (in Lakenheath as well as Feltwell and Hockwold cum Wilton) within a five-mile radius of the station.
Lakenheath is one of the least-used stations in the United Kingdom, with just 518 passenger entries/exits in 2016/17, according to Office of Rail and Road figures. The limited services that call at the station, on request and at weekends only, provide access to the RSPB Lakenheath Fen nature reserve immediately adjacent to the station.
As of December 2015[update], on Saturdays there is one train to Cambridge and one train to Norwich, and on Sundays there are three trains to Cambridge and four to Norwich. There is no weekday service.
