Northfleet railway station serves the town of Northfleet in North Kent. Train services are operated by Southeastern.

The ticket office, on the 'down' side, is situated in the substantial station building. This is manned only during part of the day; at other times a PERTIS passenger-operated ticket machine issues 'Permits to Travel' - which are exchanged on-train or at manned stations for travel tickets - and is located outside the station.

The station is very close to Ebbsfleet International station (the NNE entrance is only 305 m from Northfleet's station), but passengers (using public transport) will find it far easier to access Ebbsfleet International from Gravesend or Greenhithe, as these stations are more accessible and offer easy access to Fastrack bus services. The walking route between the two stations is 1 km or 1.3 km and a suitable pedestrian link has not been built because of funding issues and objections from Land Securities.

Services

There is also Monday-Saturday service to Charing Cross.
