Billingshurst station opened as part of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway in 1859, and fans of railway history should note that the wooden signal box at the station was the oldest operational box in the country. In 2016 the signal box was moved to Amberley Museum where it has since been carefully restored.

Alongside the red-brick buildings, platform canopies and the nearby Railway Tavern, the signal box helps to maintain the station's Victorian charm. Trains to Billingshurst travel between London Victoria and Bognor Regis, via Horsham, Crawley and Gatwick Airport. Billingshurst village lies to the north of the station, and it is a twelve-minute walk along Station Road through leafy residential neighbourhoods until you reach the High Street. There you will find most of the village's shops and the services, including pubs, banks, the post office and the library on nearby Mill Lane. The area immediately around the station, which developed with the arrival of the railway, also has a supermarket, a pub, and a couple of restaurants.
