Christ’s Hospital train station near Horsham was opened in the first few years of the 20th century by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway to serve a newly opened school. Originally the site has been used by a large dairy company, but after their bankruptcy it was purchased by Christ’s Hospital school as a way of transporting visitors to and from London. An elegant station was constructed at a staggering large cost by the LB&SCR using the same red brick as the school. When the station opened, all the pupils came down by train to celebrate the occasion. After, the station quickly expanded with several more tracks that served 7 platforms. Fast forward several decades and the Christ’s Hospital began to decline in its importance. Despite calls to preserve the station, in the early 1970s it was decided to demolish the buildings and reduce the number of platforms to serve the fewer services that passed by. The station’s biggest claim to fame was its use in the 1965 comedy movie Rotten to the Core. There is 1 direct hourly service (2 in peak hours) to London Victoria in 1 hour and 10 minutes.

When you disembark, you’ll be moments away from the Christ's Hospital Theatre located within the grounds of the school. There is a year-round schedule of student and community led productions ranging from drama to comedy.
