Bracknell railway station is a railway station serving the town of Bracknell in Berkshire, England. The station, and all trains calling there, are operated by South West Trains. It is on the London Waterloo-Reading line.
The station was opened by the Staines and Wokingham Railway in 1856, and was taken over by the London and South Western Railway in 1878. Following re-development in 1975, the station is situated directly underneath the Bracknell Quintiles building. The station's goods sidings closed in 1969 [cite web|url=http://www.bracknell.gov.uk/the-coming-of-railways.pdf|title=The Coming of Railways|publisher=Bracknell Forest Borough Council|date=1999|accessdate=2008-03-06] .
Trains operate between London Waterloo and Reading every 30 minutes, 7 days a week. On weekdays there are extra afternoon peak time trains from Reading which terminate at Ascot.
Bracknell bus station is adjacent to the railway station.
In 2008, enhancements are underway to improve access for wheelchair-bound passengers, and those with baby-vehicles or bicycles. At present, the only way to reach the down (Reading-bound) platform is over the steps of the classic Southern Railway -vintage concrete footbridge at the London end of the platforms.
