Trains to Tolworth

Tolworth station's modernist buildings are typical of the Chessington Branch Line. They aren't a later addition - the branch was built relatively late, opening in 1938 to serve commuters settling in the area south of Surbiton. Although Tolworth already had a tram connection, in the decades before rail it was fairly anonymous, best known for a few brickfields and a sewage plant. The new rail line - of which Tolworth was the original terminus - hastened the housing development that had begun in the early 20th century, and today Tolworth is a popular suburb, with the station taking locals to London Waterloo in just over an hour. The area is cut in two by the A3, with the station on the greener, east side of the road. Most shops are on the west side, along Tolworth Broadway, just a short walk away - follow the Tolworth Greenway, a striped path that leads you quickly and safely over the busy road.

Station details & facilities

Tolworth's two platforms are above the street-level ticket hall. You can purchase tickets from a machine outside or a staffed window on the concourse, and beyond the concourse, a subway leads to platform 1 (up the near set of stairs) and platform 2 (up the far stairs). Neither platform has step-free access - Surbiton is the nearest recommended step-free station, and is served by local buses from Tolworth.
