Charlbury station in Oxfordshire was restored to its mid-19th century glory in the 1970s and is Grade II listed as a classic example of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s original Italianate-style GWR countryside stations. And it’s not just the building that’s listed. The original white-on-black station name board on platform 2 is also highly prized, along with many contemporary features both inside and out from the early days of the railway. But Charlbury station’s not just a spot for tourists and railway-heritage enthusiasts. Improvements to the Cotswold Line in 2011 saw a section of the track redoubled, and the second platform at Charlbury, which had been disused for 30 years, brought back into service. This means the train service is excellent for a town of this size, with hourly trains eastbound to Oxford (20 minutes), Reading and London Paddington (1 hour 30 minutes) and westbound to Worcester and Great Malvern.
