*Helpline closed on Christmas Day

Assistance navigating through the station and getting on and off trains (by ramp if required) is available during station staffing hours (see Staff Help available times) . You can now book assistance up to 2 hours before your journey. You can also travel without booking, just make yourself known to staff as far in advance as possible of the train you would like to get - we recommend at least 20 minutes. The meeting point for assisted travel is the ticket office or you can use the help point on the platform. There are staff on all the trains that call at this station that can assist with getting on and off trains only. If no staff at the station ensure you position yourself on the platform so the on train staff can see you. Where staff are not available at the station to assist, and you need assistance beyond just getting on or off the train, we now have a mobile Assistance Team who can be deployed to stations. This can be arranged in advance by booking through Customer Services or by using the Help Point on the station (although inevitably there will be a delay if not booked in advance) - alternatively a taxi can be arranged, at no additional cost, to convey you to the nearest station where you can be assisted further.

An Assisted Boarding Point is being piloted at this station for customers requiring assistance boarding the train. For more information visit https://www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/travel-information/more-travel-help/accessible-travel
