Lines Served

This is a through station on the First Capital Connect (Thameslink) route between Luton and the south. The station is undergoing major redevelopment and we assume that the terminus platforms will become available in due course.


The tracks run approximately north/south between separate platforms, with platform 1, serving southbound trains lying east of platform 2, serving northbound trains towards Luton.

The ticket hall is off the northern end of platform 1, whilst a subway, currently provides stairs-only access between the ticket hall and platform 2.

This guide will be updated when the redevelopment of the station is complete.


Although there is step-free access to platform 1, southbound via the ramp, there is stairs-only access to platform 2, northbound. We believe lifts will be installed as part of the redevelopment work.

We therefore believe the station is accessible to Guide Dog users, but only platform 1, southbound is currently accessible to wheelchairs.
