On Sundays, three trains operate to Cambridge and four to Norwich. Lakenheath is a request halt only, so passengers should take care to notify or signal before embarking and disembarking.

Lakenheath Station has storage space for two cycles only. Station facilities are minimal. As there are no ticketing provisions, passengers should take care to purchase tickets for travel ahead of time or on board the train from a conductor. Customer help points are installed on each platform, and there are payphones available for customer use. Waiting shelters with seating are installed on both platforms. There's step-free access via ramp to both platforms, and platform interchange is via level crossing.
