Tooting is a railway station serving Tooting in South London; it is within Travelcard Zone 3. Although Tooting is in the London Borough of Wandsworth, the station is located just across the borough boundary in the neighbouring London Borough of Merton. The station is served by Thameslink and (occasional) Southern trains, and is on the Sutton Loop Line.

The station opened in 1894 as Tooting Junction, replacing an earlier station of the same name which was located a few hundred yards west which had opened in 1868. It was renamed Tooting in 1938, following the closure of the branch line from Tooting to Merton Park to passenger traffic in 1929.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is 2 trains per hour to Luton via Herne Hill and London Blackfriars (clockwise around the loop) and 2 trains per hour to Sutton via Wimbledon (anticlockwise), run by Thameslink. Additionally, Southern runs between 3 and 5 services per day between Wimbledon and London Bridge.
