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

If you enjoy taking in the splendour of Victorian architecture, then please take the time to view this beautiful small station. I travelled to Olton from here after visiting the Frankfurt Christmas market in the city centre rather than drive as I normally have done in the past. The staff were very polite and helpful when approached, and although busy... More

Full of atmosphere.Very helpful staff.Superb cafe. Trains go to London Marylebone via Banbury. Not hard to find platforms. Toilets are on the platform beyond the barrier.Accessible toilet is available. Filming often takes place here.Well worth a visit.

Amongst the construction and redevelopment in Birmingham City Centre is this little gem from the glory days of the Great Western Railway. I wasn't actually travelling through on this occasion but I'd always wanted to visit. It's amazing how it has survived without making any major changes for the modern world. Why can't all the railway stations be like Moor... More

Moor Street Station is marvellous. When it was refurbished a few years ago someone had the brilliant idea of returning it to how it probably looked in Victorian times. It's tremendously atmospheric and is a little gem that all tourists should visit. And there is the wonderful pairing of old Birmingham (Moor Street Station) with the jarringly modern, but attractive,... More

Its a station of two platforms one fairly pretty with amenities the other functional. Entrance to platform two harder to find and you guessed it this is the more functional platform.

I was staying in Birmingham City center. This was the closest station to me. It's a nice walk down New st.

Now days stations look big grand and boring Moor street looks how a station should with the old style design with a hint of modern technology. Sometimes we should take hints frim the past before its lost .

My first time here in Birmingham I really struggled to find the station. I ended up catching the bus to where I need to go. I didn't realise where it was until I caught a train into the station. It is very poorly sign posted. How ever it is a sweet train station and it's relatively chilled. It's a nice... More
