Oxted station is a busy interchange in Surrey. The station was built as a joint London, Brighton and South Coast Railway/South Eastern Railway station in 1884, and today it is the busiest suburban station on the Oxted Line, with trains running regularly to London Victoria and London Bridge. The station survived a bomb attempt by suffragette sympathisers in 1913, and in 2010 underwent a face-lift when a new lift was installed.
When rail arrived, Oxted transformed from a small village to a bustling town as the commercial centre grew up around the station. Today, passengers can alight and be in the main heart of the town in a matter of minutes, with international cuisine, boutique shops and the historic Old Oxted, with its friendly pubs, all just a short walk away. Crafty visitors should head to The Old Dairy Studios - the perfect place to learn some pottery skills.
