Never been to a train station with no bin. There was 1 notification display at the very end of the platform. There was no notification display in the waiting area too. Very poor for the so called second city.

We normally travel to London via New Street and thought we'd give the Chiltern line a try on this occasion. Having pre booked tickets a week before the landslide we were very concerned about our travel arrangements, the staff at the station were really helpful and I will certainly be travelling from here again.

Been here a few times and love how the preservation of such a piece of history has progressed. Hopefully this will keep being looked after for years to come.

They have done a wonderful job restoring this Edwardian station to the way it was when it opened. Built in 1909, it fell into disrepair during the 80's but was returned to it's former glory in time for the centenary. The canopy, signage and lamps are all pre British Rail era and replicate how the station looked under its Great... More

Morning commutes are never very plesent but changing at Moor Street is always nice. The independent cafes and coffee shops remind me of being in Oxford or marlybone, the structure is beautiful and Chiltern are very effeciant. I always make sure I can make my connections at Moor Street rather than the other city centre stations.

I love this cute traditional little station just a stone's throw from New St. It's a breath of fresh air in central Birmingham, and love that the original features and signage have been retained and kiosk style shops, without the commercial giants like Starbucks. I much prefer this station to New St. It also makes a nice change to travel... More
