Yalding railway station is on the Medway Valley Line in Kent, England, serving the village of Yalding. It is 38 miles 19 chains (61.5 km) down the line from London Charing Cross via Paddock Wood and is situated between Beltring and Wateringbury. The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.

The APTIS-equipped ticket office (on the southbound platform) closed in 1989; the building was then used for commercial purposes but has recently become disused. In 2007, a PERTIS (Permit to Travel) ticket machine was installed at the entrance to the southbound platform.

On the road outside the station, there is a level crossing.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is one train per hour to Paddock Wood and Tonbridge, and one train an hour to Strood. Connections to London are available at either of these two stations, or by changing at Maidstone Barracks and walking to Maidstone East.
