Chessington South railway station is in Chessington in the south of the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames in South London, England, and is the terminal station of the Chessington branch. The station is served by South West Trains, and is 13.91 mi (22.39 km) from London Waterloo in Travelcard Zone 6.
The station was built in 1939 as a through station on the line being laid to Leatherhead. Construction of the line stopped, never to be resumed, on the outbreak of the Second World War and the up platform was never used for passenger trains. There was a goods yard beyond the passenger station. After the continuation to Leatherhead was abandoned, part was used from the mid 1960s to the end of the 1980s for a coal concentration depot.
The ticket office is at rail level. There is one Automated Ticket Machine at surface level, and a Permit to Travel machine adjacent to the ticket office. It is the station for visitors to Chessington World of Adventures.
South West Trains operate all Chessington Branch Line services. The service interval is thirty minutes during both peak and off-peak hours. All trains run to or from London Waterloo, calling at all intermediate stations (except Queenstown Road which has platforms on only the Windsor Line). The journey to Waterloo takes 37 minutes.
