Cheddington railway station serves the village of Cheddington, near Mentmore in Buckinghamshire, England. It also serves a number of surrounding villages, most notably Ivinghoe. The station is 36 miles/58 km north west of London Euston on the West Coast Main Line. It is operated by London Midland, which also provides all services. The station has four platforms, each with 12 carriage capacity, but only platforms 3 and 4 are used regularly. Platforms 2 and 3 form a centre island. The main station buildings are located on Platform 1 adjacent to the car park.
Cheddington was formerly a junction for the LNWR's branch line to Aylesbury High Street. This branch terminated in the east of the town and made no connection to the GCR/Metropolitan Railway station in Aylesbury. It closed to passengers in 1953 (freight continuing until 1964); however, the branch platform is still in situ at Cheddington and the curve of the branch is now part of the station's approach road.
There is normally an hourly service in each direction from Cheddington: southbound to London Euston and northbound to Milton Keynes Central. There are occasional through trains to Northampton at the extremities of the day. There is sometimes, but very rarely, a service to Crewe that stops here.
The ticket office closed on 28 March 2013 and the station is now unstaffed.
