Featherstone railway station serves the town of Featherstone in West Yorkshire, England. It lies on the Pontefract Line, operated by Northern, 6 miles (10 km) east of Wakefield Kirkgate railway station.

The current station was opened by West Yorkshire Metro on 12 May 1992 when the line between Wakefield and Pontefract was reopened. A previous station on the same site had been closed in January 1967 when passenger services between Wakefield and Pontefract were withdrawn as a result of the Beeching Axe.
