Just a typical towns train station that is not always manned. We chose this mode of travel to avoid the traffic. This train station does not have a large parking area so get there early. No food is served at the train station but there is a pub in walking distance.

Worst train stations ever

Who ever does the logistics for this place is thick, Shotton has one train station? Nope, it has two. Not an issue at all if you know this. No signs, no information, nothing whatsoever? How thick do you have to be to automatically assume that people are born with the knowledge that Shotton has two stations, but is classed as one? Where else does this? Does London day it has one station, but spread out over a city?

Beware - there are two stations!
Aug 2017 • Business
Shotton lies at the intersection of two different railway lines, the main London-Holyhead line which runs along the North Wales coast and also the branch line connecting Wrexham with Bidston on the northern tip of the Wirral peninsula. What you may not realise if you haven't been there before is that there are effectively two separate stations - the Lower Level station on the coast line and the Upper Level station on the Wrexham - Bidston line.

The Lower Level station and the northbound platform of the Upper Level station are connected by a short path so it only takes a minute or two to walk from one to the other. However as there's no footbridge connecting the two platforms of the Upper Level station there's no direct link between the southbound platform and the Lower Level station. To get from the southbound platform to the Lower Level station you have to walk down from the station onto the main road through Shotton, walk up under the bridge over the road and then turn right and head back to the station. I don't know if this makes sense as I've written it but basically it takes about a minute to walk from the Upper Level northbound platform to the Lower Level station but closer to ten minutes to walk from the Upper Level southbound platform to the Lower Level station.

I once nearly came a cropper when travelling from Birkenhead to Colwyn Bay via Shotton. My train from Bidston was late departing which meant that by the time we got to Shotton I only about three minutes to get to the Lower Level station to make my connection. I had to run all the way and only just got to the platform as my connecting train pulled in. Had I missed that train I would have been stranded in Shotton for an hour waiting for the next train, and there isn't a great deal to keep yourself occupied in Shotton! Needless to say from that point on whenever I needed to travel from Birkenhead to Colwyn Bay I went via Chester instead.
