Ware railway station is in Ware in Hertfordshire, England. It is on the Hertford East Branch Line, and train services are provided by Abellio Greater Anglia, which also manages the station. Ware station is unusual in that it has only a single bidirectional platform and track on what is otherwise a double track railway. The station building dates back to the opening of the line in 1843.
