It was opened by the London & South Western Railway on 2 October 1876[2] on the existing line from Waterloo to Windsor. It is 10 miles 66 chains (17.4 km) down the line from Waterloo.

The station and all trains serving it are operated by South Western Railway. The station entrance is at the east end, nearer to London. The station is sometimes shown as St Margarets (London) to differentiate it from the station of the same name in Hertfordshire.

Trains direct to or towards London call at Platform 1. The vast majority of trains calling here stop at all stations to Waterloo. Platform 2 is now disused.
