Hampstead Heath railway station is in London on the North London Line, between Finchley Road & Frognal and Gospel Oak stations. Since 11 November 2007 it and the service there have been run by London Overground.

The typical service at the station in trains per hour is:

  • 4 westbound to Richmond via Willesden Junction
  • 2 westbound to Clapham Junction also via Willesden Junction
  • 6 eastbound to Stratford via Camden Road

The station was rebuilt, after Second World War bomb damage, in the 1990s in conjunction with works to allow Eurostar trains to use the North London Line. The platform canopies are in a pseudo-antique style which is in stark contrast to the poured concrete style of the rest of the station's structural features. In the nineteenth century up to 100,000 people per day used the station at weekends and on public holidays as the Heath was a popular holiday destination for Londoners.
