Trains to Sherborne

Trains to Sherborne drift through the wooded hillsides of the Yeo Valley, before coming to rest in this quaint market town on the London Waterloo to Exeter Line. The station itself dates back to 1860, as does the level crossing to the east and the now-defunct goods yard to the west - the latter is still visible from the station. In 2012, remote control of the crossing reduced the need for a staff presence at the station, and as a result ticket office staffing is kept to a minimum. In 2009, The Guardian highly commended the station cafe. The writer Sir Simon Jenkins called Sherborne 'the prettiest small town in Dorset', and it is incredibly picturesque, with the splendid surrounding countryside peeping through gaps in historic timber-framed and gabled buildings. Be sure to visit the imposing Abbey Church as well as the 16th century Sherborne Castle - and if you fancy picking up a bargain, head for the handcrafted goods and antique dealers of Cheap Street.

Station details & facilities

Inside Sherborne's main concourse you'll find a cafe and female toilets, and a single ticket desk. The concourse leads onto platform 1 (towards London) - male and accessible toilets are out on the platform, and there's also a direct entrance to the platform from the car park. Access to platform 2 (towards Exeter) is via a footbridge. For step-free access, pass over the level crossing on Gas House Hill; this takes a little longer, so allow plenty of time.
