Aldrington train station was opened in Hove in 1905. It formed part of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway, connecting London with the south coast towns of Brighton and Bognor Regis. It is now part of the West Coastway Line and is a 7 minute train journey from Brighton.

The original wooden platforms at Aldrington station were replaced in 1932 and the ticket office was demolished in 1990. Today, the station is unstaffed but tickets can be or purchased of collected from ticket machines at the entrance to both platforms. A subway, originally built to allow a local farmer and his cattle to cross the line, connects the two platforms.

Two trains per hour link the station with London via Brighton and the fastest journey to London Victoria takes just 1 hour and 12 minutes. In the other direction, twice hourly trains to West Worthing take 22 minutes.

The station has been previously called Aldrington Halt and Dyke Junction, and is still known by both names. It is one of three railway stations serving Hove; the main Hove station is just 2 minutes further along the track.
