Train Travel in Birmingham

Birmingham New Street [map], New Street, is Birmingham’s major local and national railway station, and the hub of Virgin’s cross country network.

New Street is one of the busiest rail interchanges in the country, and provides a middle link for long distance travel as well as intercity and metro travel.

The station is centrally located and just a few minutes away from the Bullring and 10 minutes away from Broad Street. The main exit will lead you right into the hub of a bustling city. There’s also a taxi rank immediately outside the main station, but the bus station, based on Digbeth High Street [map], is 20 minutes walk away.

The station is well equipped with booking and customer facilities and there’s plenty of seating dotted around. There’s also a pub and café, several fast food outlets and a WH Smith close at hand and a number of cold beverage machines for those who are eating on the move.

You’ll find pay toilets within the platform access area and public toilets can be found in the nearby Pallasades shopping area [map]. The Pallasades is right next to the station and provides a warm and welcoming range of facilities and shops to the weary traveller, including Internet access, and a number of cash machines. There’s also a Boots chemist here and a post office.

The Left Luggage Office can be found on the right of the station’s entrance and can be contacted on 0121 632 6884.

During evening journeys expect minimal facilities to be open, and even though there’s plenty of people around it is best to be cautious and be aware of your own safety and the safety of your possessions.

There is a smaller station – Moor Street Railway Station [map] – just five minutes away and closer to The Bullring shopping centre. There is also a station – Snow Hill Railway Station [map] – on Colmore Row, which is just past the North Western Arcade. This is the departure point for the Metro.
