Trains to Loughborough

With its sandy-coloured brickwork and peaked canopies, Loughborough station maintains the architecture that was characteristic of Midland Railway, who opened the station in 1872. The town's original station was located a short distance to the south, and was used for the first package tour organised by Thomas Cook, who brought a temperance group to a rally in Loughborough from Leicester in 1841. Today, the station is a stopping point for services between London, Derby, Nottingham and Sheffield. Visitors can walk into the town centre in about fifteen minutes, or catch the bus that leaves from outside the station on Nottingham Road. An important industrial and manufacturing town in the 19th and 20th centuries, Loughborough is today best known for its university, the town's largest employer and one of the top universities in Great Britain. With an excellent reputation for sport, it was the Olympic training camp for the British and Japanese teams in 2012.
