Hungerford train station in the Royal County of Berkshire originally opened in 1847 as a temporary terminus of the Berks and Hants Line, before becoming a permanent fixture in 1906, when the line was extended. Today the station runs a regular commuter service to London Paddington via Reading, as well as a semi-fast service to Exeter St David's. Five minutes from the station and dubbed the Bond Street of Berkshire, the idyllic town centre is a shopper's dream. It is awash with independent and specialist boutiques, as well as being something of an antique-hunter's mecca, regularly hosting BBC's Bargain Hunt around the town and in Hungerford Arcade. For those keen on getting out of town, there are plenty of trails through the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or along the Kennet and Avon canal toe-path, which runs north of the station, parallel to the train line and is the ideal spot for summer walks.

Hungerford's small unstaffed station contains very little and is accessible by entrances on both Station Road and Everland Road. A raised walkway links the station's two platforms, both of which contain bench seating. Platform 1 is also home to a ticket machine and a sheltered waiting area, but The Railway Tavern is mere metres from the station entrance, and is maybe a better place to wait for the next train.
