Facilities[edit]

As Thames Ditton is an intermediate station, facilities at the station are relatively limited. There is a single-window ticket office within the station building, as well as a lone ticket machine on the 'up' platform. A small coffee kiosk service had been suspended, but resumed service in 2012, however it is only open during the morning peak times.

There is no station car park, and only a handful of static cycle racks are available. Station toilets are not advertised.

Future[edit]

As part of the proposed Crossrail 2 infrastructure, Hampton Court has been proposed by business group London First as the terminus for a potential service to Cheshunt via Central London, opening in the "early 2030s". However, it has not been confirmed as to whether or not this includes a scheduled stop at Thames Ditton.[4]
