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

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.
