Wendoverin Buckinghamshire, as well as the villages of Ellesborough and Wendover Dean, amongst others. The station lies on the London Marylebone-Aylesbury line and is served by Chiltern Railwaystrains. It is situated between Great Missenden and Stoke Mandeville stations.
The station first opened on
1 September 1892, and was served by both the London Underground Metropolitan Lineand the Great Central Railway.
However, when the London Underground was fully electrified in the 1960s, a decision was made to run only as far as Amersham; two stops short of Wendover. This meant Wendover is now served by overground only. Services were run by
Network SouthEastuntil privatisation in 1996, when Chiltern Railwaystook over the franchise.
At peak times, there are up to 4 trains per hour towards London in the morning, and returning from London (towards Aylesbury) in the evening. Some of these are express services, which skip the stops shared with the Metropolitan Line nearer to London.

The normal service pattern is as follows:
*2 tph to Aylesbury
