Upper Warlingham railway station is on the Oxted line serving Warlingham and Whyteleafe in Surrey, England. It is in Travelcard Zone 6, 15 miles 33 chains (24.8 km) from London Bridge, although off peak trains run to and from London Victoria. The station is managed by Southern.

Description

Train services are provided by Southern with no special services – the station is on the Oxted Line. The station is approximately 150m (geographically) from Whyteleafe railway station, to the north-west, which is on a nearby mainly parallel and shorter line from London, the Caterham Line.[3]

On the London-bound platform, there is a manned ticket office (staffed for most of the day). Outside the station is a self-service passenger-operated ticket machine with cash and contactless payments. There is a card only ticket machine located on platform 2.

The station is included in London Zone 6.

The "Upper" prefix originated because what is now Whyteleafe South station on the Caterham line, approximately 600 yards to the south west, was previously (until 1956) called Warlingham station and the prefix was originally necessary to differentiate them, Whyteleafe South station being lower down in the valley. Somehow the prefix survived the change in 1956.

Train services

The typical off-peak service in trains per hour is:

Additional trains to Bedford/Luton and East Grinstead (operated by Thameslink) serve during peak hours.
