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 the 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.

The station is served by Thameslink-operated trains on the Thameslink route.

East Midlands Railway services from Leeds, Sheffield and Leicester run through at speed, but do not stop. Interchange with inter-city services can be made at Luton and St Pancras.

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 many houses, one of the first "commuter villages".[2]

The station has a PlusBus scheme where train and bus tickets can be bought together for a cheaper price. In Summer 2019 Radlett became part of TfL's Oyster card and contactless payment travel system.[3]
