Longfield is a busy commuter station in north Kent, serving Longfield, Hartley, Fawkham and the surrounding smaller villages. Situated on the Chatham Main Line, which runs between London Victoria and Dover Priory / Ramsgate, Longfield station has seen passenger numbers rise over the last decade to over half a million per year. Unsurprisingly, given the prettiness of the village and its proximity to the capital. The usual service at the station is three trains per hour to London Victoria (taking about 45 minutes), one per hour to Gillingham and two per hour to Ramsgate and Dover Priory, dividing at Faversham. The white box of a station you see today at Longfield is the third building to occupy this site. The original station, which went up when the railway first arrived in 1872, was destroyed in a fire around 1900. The second station building was then demolished in 1971 and replaced by the current prefab design.

Station details & facilities

Longfield has a small ticket office with a staffed counter and some indoor seating. Outside, off Station Road, there's a taxi rank and pay-and-display car park. Platform 2 (for Ramsgate and Dover Priory) is on the ticket office side as are bike racks and ticket machine. Platform 1 (to London Victoria), with a shelter, is over the footbridge, but step-free ramps access both platforms from either side of the station.
