Every day, around 50,000 travellers pass through the doors of Upwey railway station to commute, visit friends and family or enjoy days out across Britain. With trains to Bristol, Weymouth and Bath all available from the station.

Sitting towards the Weymouth end of the Heart of Wessex line, the station was opened in 1886 as a replacement to the existing local station built 15 years earlier!

The station was famously the subject of a Thomas Hardy poem named At the Railway Station, Upway. This told the story of a young boy waiting for the train back in the days of steam powered engines. Later being developed into a piece of music by Benjamin Britten.

Keen golfers may also be interested to know that the station is also the closest rail location to Came Down Golf Club, which was named among Golf World Magazine’s 100 Hidden Gems.
