Haslemere railway station is a busy stop on the Portsmouth Direct Line, serving the town of Haslemere, Surrey, England.

The large car park (to the south) and industrial estate (to the north) were originally large goods sidings. Platform 3 is an addition to the original structure, built in 1938 when the line was electrified. Until then Haslemere was just a standard wayside station, but it became steadily busier as commuter traffic from the surrounding countryside grew. There are now four trains an hour to London Waterloo, two of them express services.

The adjoining bridge (Foster's Bridge) over Lower Street was originally built as a two-track brick arch, but was widened later with a metal girder section. The station has a newspaper seller, coffee kiosk and a dry cleaner, in addition there is a larger newsagent's adjacent to the station.

Since June 2008 a new footbridge with lifts provides disabled access to platforms 2 and 3.

Services

It is the only station on the Portsmouth Direct Line between Guildford and Havant Junction with more than two platforms. Platform 3 is used to allow northbound fast services to overtake stopping services. Platform 2 (generally up line) also receives terminating down trains.
