Radlett railway station is on the Midland Main Line in England, serving the village of Radlett, Hertfordshire. It is 15 miles 17 chains (24.5 km) down-line from London St Pancras and is situated between Elstree & Borehamwood to the south and St Albans City to the north. Its three-letter station code is RDT.
It was built by the Midland Railway in 1868 on its extension to St Pancras. The original intention had been to name the station Aldenham. In the early 20th century, Walter Phillimore, who owned Radlett, built a large number of houses, one of the first "commuter villages".
The station has a PlusBus scheme where train and bus tickets can be bought together for a cheaper price.
