Trains to Alton

Alton station is the terminus of the Alton line, connecting to Brookwood and beyond to London Waterloo. There is usually a service to London Waterloo every half an hour (fewer trains on Sundays) and the journey takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. The town centre is under 10 minutes' walk from the station, and about 20 minutes away by bus, or 10 minutes in the car, is the Jane Austen House Museum in Chawton. Alton sits at the northern edge of the South Downs National Park, with its beautiful natural landscapes and long-distance walking routes. Trains first came to Alton in East Hampshire in 1852, with the station moving to its current location in 1865. While you're at the station, you may notice some steam coming from platform 3. That's because the heritage Watercress Line runs from here to Alresford using locomotives mainly dating from the 1920s to the 1960s.
