Woolwich Dockyard railway station is in Woolwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It is 8 miles 56 chains (14.0 km) measured from London Charing Cross. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Southeastern. It is in Travelcard Zone 3. It takes its name from the former Woolwich Dockyard.

During the 2012 Olympics, the station was closed owing to its proximity to the Royal Artillery Barracks, as it was too small to cope with the potentially very large number of passengers. Thameslink services do not stop at this station.
