Once home to an active nuclear-material handling facility due to its close proximity to the Bradwell nuclear power station, Southminster train station is now much more just a train station. On the Crouch Valley Line, the 1880s train station serves the rural south Essex town about fifty miles outside of central London. Today, the station runs a fairly limited timetable, with most trains that leave the station from its single platform heading for Wickford, thirty minutes away. A peak-time commuter service also leaves the station on weekdays for London Liverpool Street, taking around an hour and ten minutes. The station is surrounded by sympathetically built commuter homes and a pub, The Station Arms, a two-minute walk from the station. Southminster High Street is five minutes to the west of the station and has everything you might need for a short stay in the town, from restaurants and cafes to pubs, bars and shops.

Station details & facilities

Southminster station, accessible off Tattersalls Chase, is completely unstaffed all year round. The station's only platform is sparsely laid out and home only to bike storage, bench seating, a customer help point and a ticket machine. For those with time to kill before their departure, The Station Arms, an award-winning, traditional pub with a line of good ales is a two-minute walk around the corner from the station on Station Road.
