Description:
Esher railway station is served by the Waterloo to Woking service, operated by South West Trains. The station serves Esher via the main entrance, and a footpath leading to Sandown Park Racecourse. At off-peak times there are 2 trains per hour north and 2 trains per hour south. The station is recognisable by its distinctive wooden bridge. Two additional island platforms are disused and not accessible to passengers; they are passed by through trains without stopping.

History

When the railway arrived in Esher in 1838, the station was originally named "Ditton Marsh" after a large area of land near which the station was constructed which marks the boundary separating Thames Ditton from Esher. The station was opened on 21 May 1838, and the name was soon altered from Ditton Marsh to Esher and Hampton Court . It has since been renamed twice more: to Esher and Claremont in July 1844, and to Esher on 1 June 1913. It has also been shown as Esher for Claremont, or as Esher for Sandown Park in some timetables.

Popular culture

Esher railway station featured on Little Howard's Big Question, a children's TV show, when they confused the artist M. C. Escher with the town, and one of his drawings is mistakenly thought to be the railway station.
