The station has two platforms:
- Platform 1 - for through services towards Southampton.
- Platform 2 - for through services towards Bournemouth and Weymouth.
Both platforms can only accommodate trains of up to five coaches, longer trains only open the doors in the first four or five coaches depending on the type of unit operating the service.
The station was formerly the location of a camping coach.
A basic hourly service operates each way (including Sundays), with additional calls during the weekday business periods.
