Liss railway station is a stop on the Portsmouth Direct Line, serving the village of Liss in Hampshire, England, 51 miles 35 chains (82.8 km) down the line from London Waterloo via Woking.[1] As a small station, for most of the day there is one train each way (to Portsmouth and London) an hour. The station is managed by South Western Railway, which operates all trains serving it.

The station had a platform adjacent to the main line, which was the southern terminus of the Longmoor Military Railway. The former station goods yard connected to the LMR via Liss Junction. The footbridge was replaced on the night of 1/2 April 1967 by the ex-London, Brighton and South Coast Railway one from the former Cranleigh railway station.[2]
