Kidderminster station opened in 1852, although the current station buildings were built over a century later in the 1960s. The station has regular services to Worcester, Birmingham and Great Malvern, as well as a number of trains a day to London Marylebone. Next door to Kidderminster station is Kidderminster Town, a Victoria-style station that opened in 1984 to serve the Severn Valley heritage steam railway that runs to Bridgnorth.
Both stations are about half a mile east of the town centre. Throughout the town, it is still possible to see some well-preserved examples of 19th-century mill architecture, from the time when Kidderminster was at the centre of the carpet industry in Great Britain. The main shopping area is on the pedestrianised streets south of The Swan shopping centre, and some newer developments along the banks of the River Stour. On the High Street, there is a twice-weekly market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Fancy a day out with family or friends? Kidderminster is the nearest station to West Midland Safari and Leisure Park, where you can get up close to hundreds of animals from around the world. If you want to avoid a walk up the steep hill between the lower and upper part of Bridgnorth town, why not take the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway, a historic funicular railway that will offer you excellent views.
