London Road (Guildford) railway station is situated in the east of Guildford in Surrey, England, lying close to the suburbs of Merrow and Burpham. It is 28 miles 47 chains (46.0 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

The station is managed by South Western Railway, who provide the majority of train services. Southern also provide some peak period services.

It is situated on the New Guildford Line between Waterloo and Guildford via Cobham, although some trains operate via Epsom rather than Cobham.

The parenthesised Guildford is to avoid confusing the station with the similarly named London Road (Brighton). The name was formally changed to London Road, Guildford from London Road in 1923 when operation of the line was taken over from the London and South Western Railway by the Southern Railway, which then ran all the railways in SE England.[1]

Platform layout[edit]

Platform 1 - Up trains to London Waterloo via Cobham and Epsom, and peak hour trains to London Bridge and London Victoria
