Teddington railway station is located in Teddington in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, in south west London, and is in Travelcard Zone 6. It is 13 miles 54 chains (22.0 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

The station is operated by South Western Railway, as are all trains serving it. It was listed Grade II as of historic interest in 2012.

Station layout[edit]

There are two platforms joined by a footbridge near the north-western end of the station buildings. This footbridge has a barrier running its length so that it is usable either externally to provide access from Victoria Road to Station Road or internally to provide access between the platforms. A second footbridge exists south-east of the station between a footpath off Victoria Road and the point where Station Road becomes Cromwell Road.

Service[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is:[2]

On Sundays, the services run less frequently - hourly to Shepperton, to Waterloo via Kingston and Waterloo via Richmond. There is also an hourly service between Kingston and Waterloo via Hounslow.

The principal station buildings are located in Victoria Road in Teddington, although access is also available from Station Road. The Station Road entrance is a four-minute walk from Teddington High Street.

History[edit]

Several carriages of a train that had stopped at the station were destroyed in an arson attack by suffragettes on 26 April 1913.[3]
