Snodland railway station is on the Medway Valley Line in Kent, England, serving the village of Snodland which lies some way to the west. It is 36 miles 59 chains (59.1 km) down the line from London Charing Cross via Strood and is situated between Halling and New Hythe. The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.
In 2007, a PERTIS (Permit to Travel) ticket machine was installed just outside the entrance to the northbound platform. The ticket office was originally closed around 1990 but was reopened in September 2016. The station building was occupied by an Indian food takeaway on the lower floor and a taxi company on the upper floor. The signal box alongside the station has been closed and is now a listed building.
