Worplesdon railway station is a railway station in the Woking district of Surrey, England. The station is located between Woking and Guildford stations on the Portsmouth Direct Line, 26 miles 55 chains (42.9 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

The station opened in 1883, surrounded by open heath and farmland. Some nearby land has subsequently been developed and the station is currently situated in an area of affluent low-density housing. The nearest village to the station is Mayford, located approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) north-northeast of the station.

Despite its name, the station is not located in Worplesdon village, which is approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the southwest.

The current typical weekday off-peak service pattern is one train per hour in each direction, northbound to London Waterloo via Woking and Clapham Junction, and southbound to Portsmouth and Southsea calling at most stations via Guildford and Havant. At peak times the frequency is increased to half-hourly.

Sunday services began at this station at the start of 2020, with one train per hour on the Guildford - Waterloo (via Woking) suburban service calling here.
