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.

Bus services 513, 514, 515 and on Sundays 715 serve the station.


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". It has been suggested that Crossrail 2 will serve Thames Ditton exclusively following this, with an increase from two trains per hour to four.[4]
