Seascale railway station serves the village of Seascale in Cumbria, England. The railway station is on the Cumbrian Coast Line, and operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services.

The railway is dual-track as it passes through Seascale. The railway at Seascale passes over three bridges (two paths; one road) and underneath one (footbridge). The views are of St Bees Head and Scotland (to the north), Seascale village (to the east and south) and the Isle of Man (to the west). There are train shelters and seating but this is not a staffed station. Passenger trains frequencies have improved slightly since the December 2008 timetable change (there are now ten departures per day to Barrow and Carlisle), although there is no evening or Sunday service. Freight trains often pass through either going to or coming from Sellafield (the nuclear power station).
