Wapping Railway Station serves the area of Wapping in the Borough of Tower Hamlets with regular Overground trains on the East London Line. During the week, trains from Wapping run every 5-10 minutes daily, a frequency maintained for the first part of Sunday and then slowing to 7-8 minutes in the afternoon. Typical service sees eight northbound trains to Highbury & Islington, eight northbound to Dalston Junction, four southbound to Clapham Junction via Peckham Rye, four southbound to Crystal Palace via New Cross Gate, another four to New Cross, and finally four to West Croydon via Norwood Junction. London Buses routes 100 and D3 serve Wapping.

Despite being served by Overground trains, Wapping Station, in fact, lies below ground—a point of some safety concerns due to the narrow, curving platforms. The ticket office at Wapping is open during weekday mornings; for ticket purchase after this time, customers should use the self-service machines or travel with Oyster cards. Train running information is provided via digital display screens and automated announcements. There is no step-free access to the platforms.
