Cheshunt railway station serves the town of Cheshunt in Hertfordshire, England. It is on the West Anglia Main Line and the Lea Valley Lines, and train services are provided by National Express East Anglia.

National Express East Anglia has fulfilled a franchise commitment to extend the bay platform at Cheshunt to accommodate 8-coach trains (previously it could only accommodate up to 6 coaches). The works also involved replacing all existing station buildings, and replacing the station footbridge. Construction commenced in December 2005 and was largely complete by August 2006.

In the 2012 Summer Olympics, Cheshunt station (along with Waltham Cross, the next southbound station) will serve as the main access point for the Broxbourne whitewater canoe and kayak slalom.

An Oyster Card extension to Cheshunt station from Enfield Lock railway station/Turkey Street railway station is in the planning stages. This means Waltham Cross railway station and Theobalds Grove railway station will also be included in the extension and will allow passengers travelling to Central London to be able to use Oyster, rather than paper tickets to travel.



The railway line from Stratford to Broxbourne was opened by the Northern & Eastern Railway on 15 September 1840. Cheshunt station itself was opened by the Eastern Counties Railway in 1846 .[1]

The lines from Hackney Downs to Bishop's Stortford and Hertford East, including those through Cheshunt station, were electrified on November 21, 1960. The lines south from Cheshunt via Tottenham Hale were not electrified until May 5, 1969.[2]

The station in January 2006, just after the start of renovation work (now complete).

A railway existed in Cheshunt before the station and the main line from London were originally opened in the 1840s. The horse-drawn Cheshunt Railway was opened on 26 June 1825. Based on a design by Henry Robinson Palmer, this line ran for 0.75 mi (1.21 km) from the town's High Street to the River Lea, near where Cheshunt station is today. This long-defunct railway is of interest as it was the world's first passenger-carrying monorail and the first railway line to open in Hertfordshire.[3][4]
