Trains to Crewe

If ever there was a town that owed its existence to the railway, it’s Crewe. In the late 1830s, the Grand Junction Railway company chose the location to establish its main engineering works and opened the railway station at the junction of several lines in 1837. The town itself was not planned out until 1843 when it was needed to accommodate the growing number of workers serving the increasingly busy works and station. So, it is said, the town was named after the station and not the other way around. Today Crewe station is one of the largest stations in the northwest and a major interchange on the West Coast Main Line, where six routes converge. It has 12 platforms, and during the day around 23 trains pass through every hour, many connecting directly to major cities across England, Wales and Scotland.

Station details & facilities

Access to all 12 platforms at Crewe station is through the ticket hall and down either stairs or lifts. There is an additional pedestrian bridge at the far end of the platforms, which provides step access only. You’ll find cafes and newsagents in the ticket hall and on platforms 5 and 6. Immediately outside the entrance is a taxi rank, drop-off point and some accessible parking spaces. Cycle racks are available on platforms 5, 6, 11 and 12.
