Worplesdon railway station is near the village of Worplesdon, Surrey, England. It is on the Portsmouth Direct Line between Woking and Guildford, 26 miles 55 chains (42.9 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

The station opened in 1883, surrounded by open heath and farmland. Some nearby land has subsequently been developed and the station is currently situated in an area of affluent, very low density housing; Worplesdon village itself is centred approximately a mile and a half to the southwest. The village of Mayford is located approximately a mile north of the station. The station is in the Ward of Mayford and Sutton Green in the Borough of Woking. Worplesdon village is best reached from nearby Brookwood station from where there is an hourly bus to Worplesdon from the main road (Connaught Road) in front of the station: Route 28 Monday - Saturday and route 91 on Sundays.

The ticket office and buffet are open during the morning peak Monday - Friday only. There is a ticket machine for purchase of tickets at other times. The station has a car park and cycle rack.

Services[edit]

The current typical off-peak service is one train per hour northbound (calling at Woking, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo) and one train per hour southbound (calling at most stations to either Portsmouth and Southsea or Portsmouth Harbour). At peak times the service is half-hourly. There is no Sunday service.
