Petersfield railway station is a railway station serving the market town of Petersfield, Hampshire, England. It is located on the Portsmouth Direct Line which runs between London (London Waterloo) and Portsmouth (Portsmouth Harbour railway station).

The station has two tracks, and two platforms, although in the past had a third platform branching into the coal yard situated adjacent to the station and a fourth platform on the north side of the level crossing serving the branch to Midhurst closed in 1955. The main buildings date back to the opening of the line in 1859 and are of a "town" type, larger than other wayside stations on the route but identical to Godalming.

There used to be a halt to the south of the station called Woodcroft. It was built to serve the local naval establishment. Because of its naval nature it wasn't featured on many maps, some maps however did mark it by a little tab but without a name.

Services

Its service has improved steadily over the years and it now normally enjoys three trains per hour in each direction, of which two are expresses between Waterloo and Portsmouth. A new bus service started in 2007 linking the town of Waterlooville with the station at Petersfield, running via Horndean, to give that area access to the rail network.
