Peakirk railway station served the parish of Peakirk in Cambridgeshire.

The station building was converted into a private residence in the early 1990s. It is notable for having few external alterations, excluding a recent extension. Many of the original features are intact, though the platform and good yards have been removed and been replaced with housing.
