Long Description:
Varde Station er en jernbanestation på Den vestjyske længdebane.

Stationen blev indviet 3. oktober 1874 samtidig med jernbanestrækningen Esbjerg-Varde. 8. august 1875 blev banen forlænget mod nord til Ringkøbing Station.

15. marts 1903 blev forbindelsen til Nørre Nebel ad Varde-Nørre Nebel Jernbane (nu Vestbanen) indviet. Mod vest blev Varde-Grindsted Jernbane indviet 13. april 1919. Den blev nedlagt igen 31. marts 1972. DSB afgik fra stationen i 2004 og DSB-Kiosken lukkede, som følge i 2007. Arriva valgte åbenbart at lukke deres billetsalg og nedlægge venteværelset i 2016. I dag skal man købe billetter i en automat eller benytte rejsekort. Man kan også kun vente udenfor på perronen, da Arriva gav afkald på bygningen i december 2016.

Der er 9 spor på stationen, 4 perronspor og 5 arbejs/sidespor. Arriva har en remise og togvask på den nordlige side af stationen, ud mod Sig. Den vestjyske længebane er den dominerende bane, som råder over: Spor 1, spor 2 og spor 3. Og den lille tillægsbane Vestbanen, som går mod Janderup og Nørre Nebel, råder over spor 0 og sidesporet 6.
Hele stationen betjenes af Arriva.
