Rowan Halt railway station,[3][4] was a railway station in Hove, in East Sussex, England which opened in 1933 and closed on 1 January 1939; the layout and curvature of Rowan Avenue indicates where the branch ran.[5]

The station served the Aldrington Estate (then being built by T. J. Braybon & Sons Ltd), and "enabled residents working in Brighton or Hove to return home for their cooked meal at lunchtime".[5]
