Bexhill railway station serves Bexhill-on-Seamarker in East Sussexmarker. It is on the East Coastway Line, and train services are provided by Southern.

From December 2005, transport links to and from Bexhill by rail were strengthened with an hourly express service between Brightonmarker and Ashford Internationalmarker which stops at Bexhill station.

The station is a Grade II listed building, and a lavish restoration project to the platform canopies and to the booking hall was finally completed in the summer of 2008. The station is also accredited as part of the Department for Transport's Secure Stations scheme, with a digital CCTV system in place. The station is staffed during the daytime but not late in the evenings.

Historically, Bexhill was the original name of Bexhill Westmarker, on a branch from the Hastings Line at Crowhurst, providing direct services north to Londonmarker. The station and line closed in 1964. The station known today as Bexhill was previously known as Bexhill Central.

An active local campaign group Bexhill Rail Action Group (BRAG)*[128115] was formed in 2005 in response to proposals to end through services to London Victoriamarker. The campaign was successful, and BRAG continues to campaign for local rail improvements.

Campaigners are seeking to upgrade and electrify the Marshlink Line to extend Southeastern high speed train services (which will operate from London St Pancrasmarker via High Speed 1 to Ashford Internationalmarker) onwards via Ryemarker to Hastingsmarker, Bexhillmarker and Eastbournemarker, and which, if realised could slash journey times between Bexhill and the capital to around 1 hour and 15 minutes, instead of the average 1 hour 52 minutes currently
