Bournville station opened in 1876 as Stichley Street. It was originally a terminus in a sparse farming landscape to the south of Birmingham, but it soon came to the attention of chocolate company bosses George and Richard Cadbury. The brothers wanted to expand into a new site with plenty of space and rail and canal connections, and Stichley Street fit the brief perfectly. In 1879 the Cadbury Bournville Factory opened next door, taking its name from the nearby Bourn Brook. The famous Bournville village followed in the 1890s, offering high-quality housing for Cadbury workers, and the station's name was changed to Bournville in 1904. As you'll see as soon as you step off the train, Cadbury still looms large today - the logo and purple colour are incorporated into station signage. While many passengers come here for the Cadbury World tour, there's also plenty of commuter traffic from Bournville into Birmingham New Street, just 12 minutes away.

Station details & facilities

The station's ticket office is on Bournville Lane and has two staffed desks plus ticket machines. Outside, a ramp and steps to the right lead up to platform 1 (towards Birmingham and Lichfield), and a subway straight ahead leads to platform 2 (towards Redditch and Longbridge). Both routes have steps, but for step-free access, use the entrances either side of the railway bridge on Mary Vale Road, one block south. For Cadbury World, exit through the ticket hall.
