Baldock railway station serves the town of Baldock in Hertfordshire, England. It is on the Cambridge Line, 36 miles 47 chains (58.9 km) north of London King's Cross, and is located on the outskirts of Baldock on Station Road.
Opened by the Royston and Hitchin Railway, then run by the Great Northern Railway, it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
Daily (including Sundays) there are two trains per hour southbound towards London King's Cross and two per hour northbound towards Cambridge. These trains serve outer-suburban stations on the main line and all stations north of Hitchin; one train per hour travels on to Cambridge North. On weekdays there is an additional semi-fast train each hour, south to Brighton and north to Cambridge. Weekday peak variations see some trains originating/terminating at Royston and through trains to Ely & Kings Lynn.
