Wraysbury railway station serves the village of Wraysbury in Berkshire, England, as well as the larger villages of Stanwellmoor and Poyle. It is 21 miles 40 chains (34.6 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

The station is on the line between Windsor and Eton Riverside and Waterloo. Services are operated by South Western Railway.

As part of the proposed AirTrack rail link, a new station, to be called Staines High Street railway station would be built between Wraysbury and Staines railway station. This proposal (involving rebuilding a former station) has been in doubt for some years. Heathrow Airtrack — Consultation Brochure 2 - October 2008.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service is of two trains per hour to London Waterloo, and two to Windsor & Eton Riverside. There is one train per hour in each direction on Sundays.
