Croxley Station (formerly named Croxley Green Station) is a London Underground station at Croxley Green in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire. It is on the Watford branch of the Metropolitan Line. It was renamed 'Croxley' in 1949 so as differentiate itself from the now closed Croxley Green.

The station is situated on the corner of Watford Road and Winton Drive in Croxley Green.

Link to Watford Junction
The Croxley Rail Link is a proposal to divert the Watford Branch east of Croxley to Watford Junction station. In 2005, plans were approved to link the line through Croxley which terminates at Watford, via a deviation to the much more important station at Watford Junction. Intermediate stations would be built or rebuilt at Ascot Road (near the old Croxley Green), Watford West and Watford High Street.
