Trains to Hinckley

Hinckley station was built by the South Leicestershire Railway in 1861, and subsequently taken over by the London and North West Railway six years later. Today it's a small station on the Birmingham-to-Peterborough Line, serving passengers from the towns of Hinckley and Burbage. Trains run hourly to Birmingham New Street and Leicester, from platforms 1 and 2 respectively - an additional peak-time service travels to Stansted Airport via Cambridge. Hinckley's bustling town centre is about half a mile north of the station. It's popular with shoppers, and is centred around the pedestrianised section of Castle Street and the indoor Britannia Centre, which consists of fifteen stores and stalls, both chain and independent. The nearby town of Burbage - effectively a suburb of Hinckley - is more suburban than its neighbour, and home to the Burbage Common and Woods, a large country park that is referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Station details & facilities

Hinckley's car park and ticket hall are off Hawley Road. The ticket office leads onto platform 1 (towards Birmingham), and there's a side entrance for use when the office is closed. Access to platform 2 (towards Leicester) is via a bridge or an alley on the south side of the station, off Bridge Road. The bridge has ramps, so you shouldn't need the Bridge Road entrance unless you're coming from that direction. For the town centre, exit on the ticket office side.
