Albrighton train station serves commuters in the Shropshire village of Albrighton, offering connections to Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Shrewsbury. The fastest journey time to Wolverhampton is 15 minutes, making the village a popular dormitory town for commuters.
The station opened in 1849 as part of the Shrewsbury and Birmingham Railway. It is now part of the Shrewsbury to Wolverhampton Line. A former goods yard at Albrighton station now houses offices but the rest of the station has undergone a programme of improvements and restoration to retain its historical features. The striking red brick Italianate style station building and Grade II listed footbridge, which dates from around 1880, have both been preserved.
Albrighton train station has two platforms with small seating areas and shelters for passengers. The nearby Platform Ale House is a popular local stop for drinks and bar snacks and a small café for commuters opened on Platform One in February 2018.
Hourly trains depart for Birmingham New Street and Shrewsbury, with journey times of 34 minutes and 36 minutes respectively. The village is also served by the nearby M54.
