Weybridge railway station is near the established midpoint of Weybridge in Surrey, England and south of its town centre. It is on the South Western Main Line and operated by South Western Railway.

It is 19 miles 12 chains (30.8 km) from London Waterloo[note 1] and is situated between Walton-on-Thames and Byfleet & New Haw on the main line. The Chertsey branch line diverges from the main line here and runs to Virginia Water.

History

The station was opened by the London and Southampton Railway on 21 May 1838. The line is set in a deep cutting at this point: the main station buildings are at street level on the Up side of the station and are linked to the platforms by stairs and a footbridge. Up and Down platforms serve the slow lines; there is a bay platform on the up side, from which trains operate on the Chertsey or Weybridge Branch of the Waterloo to Reading Line. Stops on this line include the main towns and villages of Runnymede and it gives Weybridge's longer route to Waterloo via Staines. This service can also be used to provide a cheaper and quicker route to the Great Western Main Line, by changing at Virginia Water for the service to Reading, Berkshire from Waterloo, for passengers on or by the South West Main Line but not near the North Downs Line.

Service

Services from the station in trains per hour, at weekday times and to and from Waterloo, are:

Amenities and immediate surroundings

A pub with large car park, nightclub and Saint George's Hill adjoin the north and east of the station respectively. The business estate, museum of Brooklands and Brooklands College adjoin the other sides. The station is close to the approximate midpoint of the medieval parish boundaries of Weybridge.[1]

Bus routes 436, 515 and the Cobham Chatterbus serve the station. [2]
