Assisted Travel:

See below for times when this station is staffed.

Assistance can be pre booked up to two hours before departure by contacting Assisted Travel.

If you choose to travel unbooked (turn up and go), when the station is staffed, our station staff can provide assistance getting on and off the train and assistance around the station and to the platform. Please contact a member of staff on arrival.

Most trains at this station have on board staff who are trained to step onto the platform when the train arrives so they can provide assistance on and off the train. You can also arrange assistance on arrival by:

  • Pressing the “emergency & assisted travel” button on a station Help Point
  • Calling our freephone number: 0800 138 1016
  • Texting us on 07970 511077

Whether you pre book assistance or travel on a 'turn up and go' basis, we recommend arriving 20 minutes prior to your train departing. This is to allow us to make sure arrangements are in place at your destination, or interchange, station such as the availability of staff and lifts. If there is insufficient time to check these arrangements, we may assist you onto the next available train.

For further information on assisted travel please see:

Accessibility at the station - Southern.
