The majority of trains to Solihull travel on the Chiltern Main Line between London and Birmingham, with additional services to Leamington Spa and Worcester. The attractive red-brick station building was built in the 1930s, although the first Solihull station opened in 1852. The station stands to the west of Solihull town-centre, itself extensively remodelled in the 1960s to create a central shopping area around Mell Square. This area, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, is about ten minutes' walk from the station, and despite the post-war changes to the town, the pedestrianised High Street maintains much of its historic character. On the other side of the town centre, the Malvern and Brueton Parks are a major attraction, with playgrounds, a nature reserve, wildlife walks and a series of events throughout the year. Regular buses link the station with the parks - via the town centre - and the journey takes about fifteen minutes.
