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.

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

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..!!
