Leigh railway station is on the Redhill to Tonbridge Line and serves Leigh in Kent, England. It opened as "Leigh Halt" in 1911; was renamed "Lyghe Halt" in 1917; "Leigh Halt" again about 1960; and "Leigh" in 1969. (Leigh is pronounced as in lie—identical with the name of Lye railway station in the West Midlands.). The station was always unstaffed.
In 1993 the line was electrified and services started to run through to London rather than being an extension of the Reading to Tonbridge North Downs Line service.
In 2007, a PERTIS machine was installed at the street entrance to the Tonbridge-bound platform. The station was until December 2008 operated by Southeastern before it transferred to Southern, whose green signage was installed before October 2008.
The typical off peak service is one train per hour east to Tonbridge railway station, and west to London Bridge via Redhill and East Croydon.
