First opened in 1856, the historic Aylesford Railway Station connects the village and civil parish of Aylesford with Southeastern train services along the Medway Valley Line. Off-peak services sees two trains from Aylesford depart per hour for Maidstone West, with alternate trains continuing to Paddock Wood and Tonbridge on a route some consider one of Kent's most picturesque. High-speed rail connections are available from Maidstone West to St Pancras International during morning and evening rush periods. Likewise, two trains an hour depart Aylesford to Strood for further connections to London.

Today the station is unstaffed, and the original station buildings are now in private and commercial use. Tickets may be purchased from self-service ticket machines on the platforms. Departure screens and announcements are available for passenger ease, and there is one waiting shelter on each platform. This station is not step-free, so passengers requiring accessible entrances are advised to board from a different station.
