Trains to Ambergate

A picturesque station with a complicated past, Ambergate Railway Station has served the people of Ambergate in Derbyshire since 1840. Originally built as a grand station fit for a lord, the station was rebuilt twice in quick succession, ultimately coming into its characteristic triangular shape to suit the needs of the complicated Ambergate Junction. The triangular Ambergate Station saw both local passenger carriages and express trains from London to Manchester pass through, becoming a vitally important station throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Following the closing of other stations along the original Derwent Valley Line, Ambergate Railway Station fell into decline. Today, only one platform along the single track to Matlock is in use. Trains to Ambergate are operated by East Midlands Trains Local, with services formed of diesel units along the Newark Castle-Nottingham and Matlock lines. Monday through Saturday, services are hourly in each direction; on Sundays, services operate every two hours. The station has step-free access. Tickets may be purchased or collected from a self-service machine in the waiting shelter along platform 1.
