It has four platform faces on islands located between the slow and fast pairs of tracks. To the north of the station is Petts Wood Junction, where the up (London-bound) and down (country-bound) loop lines link the lines from Charing Cross and Victoria. The station is operated by Southeastern.


The station was built on the main line to the north of Orpington and opened on 9 July 1928, initially as a single island platform, with the first tickets printed showing the name as Pett's Wood. The community now surrounding it developed from that date: now the railway divides Petts Wood East and Petts Wood West.


London Buses routes 208, 273, 661, R3, R7 and N199 serve the station.
