Attractively restored railway station. It demonstrates how older buildings and be restored and adapted to modern use. It is a pity this approach is not adopted more often. Well worth a visit if you are in Birmingham. Welcome contrast to the many ugly 20th Century buildings nearby.

This rail station is small but one unique point is its preservation of heritage. The signages and the ticketing office contain the old English heritage, and be aware that this station is not the main transport hub in Birmingham. It is near to St Martins so get some food after visiting this station!

What a fantastic surprise. Overshadowed by Birmingham New Street station, Moor Street is actually a little gem. Even if you are not travelling it is certainly worth a visit. I suspect young children would like it because it has a certain atmosphere of Platform 9 and 3/4 where as the grown ups can reminisce about a bygone era. It was... More

We go thru Moor Street every week when we pop up to St Martins and the markets. WOW...............a proper railway station and..................it is not a voluntary thing but a working station. I am proud of it and it is just like it was when I went to Margate from there 60 years ago..!!

Lovely station, well maintained. There is a lot of history and detail. I don't think you could spend more than 20 mins there but it's nice to have a look at how things used to be whilst seeing modern life going on all around you

First time I have been to Moor St station and what a delightful little station it is. Lovely seating areas to drink a not over priced cappuccino whilst waiting for train to Stratford upon Avon, much friendlier than big brother New St just up the road.

What a delight to find in the middle of the hectic city. Quiet, though plenty of people around and built to human scale. Clear signage, bright and open it is a positive joy to be in. It took me back in time to when I used to travel on such lines and the design, while small and simple is so... More

If only Chiltern Railways were as cheap as London Midland, otherwise I'd use this station every week! I absolutely adore travelling through this station. The perfect example of old world meets new world. The backdrop of the Selfridges building just adds to the beauty. My only complaint is that they removed the lovely old steam train from one of the...

I use this station roughly four times a week, never any problems always friendly. There a cash point and coffee shop past the ticket gates as well as a lift and the rest facilities. There is a couple of coffee shops before going through and a corner shop none of which are that bad for prices!

, , , , , but it's a great shame that the old G W R steam locomotive is no longer sitting there just inside the barriers. Almost has the feel that you are in a Living Museum. If you are shopping in the Bullring why not pop across the road and have a look. You don't have to be... More
