Trains to Perry Barr

One of the oldest continually operating station sites in the world, Perry Barr station, in the north Birmingham suburb, opened in 1838 and was rebuilt in the 1960s. The station is part of a parade of shops on Birchfield Road and is just over the road from the bustling One Stop Shopping Centre. Visitors are also drawn to the area for a flutter on the dogs at Perry Bar Greyhound Stadium and for the student life around Birmingham City University, both which are within moments' walk of the station, and for athletics at Alexander Stadium, twenty minutes' walk away. The station runs two trains per hour on the London Midland line to Wolverhampton from platform 1, and from platform 2, the local Walsall Line also runs four trains an hour through Perry Bar on Mondays to Saturdays, linking Birmingham New Street with the northern parts of the Black Country.

Station details & facilities

The concourse on Birchfield Road leads past the station's only ticket window out to the station bridge, which is home to a single ticket machine. Stairs lead either side of the tracks to platforms 1 and 2. The station's two platforms are similar in layout, both home to bench seating, a customer help point and a sheltered waiting area. A small cafe can be found at the front of the station on Walsall Road.
