Designed by David Field in 1858 and opened by the Epsom and Leatherhead Railway, part of the London and South Western Railway, it became a joint station between that railway and the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway and was absorbed into the Southern Railway by the grouping of 1923. The station passed to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
Before its renovation, the station was designed by Nigel Wikeley in the typical 'CLASP' manner, with a long and low design constructed from prefabricated materials. The main ticket office building was rebuilt in 2013.
