Trains to Birmingham Snow Hill

Snow Hill is the northernmost of Birmingham's three city-centre stations, located around the corner from Birmingham Cathedral and a few blocks from the west side of Birmingham University's main campus. Once a much grander station, for decades it competed directly with New Street, only losing the battle when the main line into New Street was electrified. Snow Hill was closed in 1972, but revived less than ten years later, and got a new building in 1987. Today most of its services are local ones on the Snow Hill Lines, serving cities and commuter towns to the south of Birmingham: Worcester, Kidderminster, Stratford-upon-Avon and Solihull are its major destinations, with hourly services onward to London Marylebone. Sadly Snow Hill's ornate 1912 building was demolished in the 1970s, but a few period touches remain: look out for an old entrance on Livery Street, and - most unusual - a blink-and-you'll-miss-it memorial to an old station cat. It's a colourful square tile near the ticket barriers.

Station details & facilities

Snow Hill's main entrance is on a pedestrianised plaza off Colmore Row. Immediately to the right are stairs and a lift to the tram platforms, but for rail services, proceed into the main concourse, where there are several ticket desks and ticket machines. You can also reach the concourse step-free from the Livery Road car park. Beyond the ticket barriers, lifts and escalators lead down to the platforms, which all have waiting rooms and toilet facilities.
