South Wigston railway station is used by the community of South Wigston in Leicestershire. It is relatively new for British stations having only opened in the mid ‘80s replacing three other stations which had served Wigston before. Interestingly, it’s one of the only stations in the country to have staggered platforms with one further down the tracks that the other. Today, the station and the trains that pass through on the Birmingham to Peterborough Line are managed by East Midlands Trains, though there are several CrossCountry services that stop. There are no facilities for buying tickets, so they must either be bought online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. Facilities are a little sparse with just a modern glass waiting shelter on both platforms, timetable posters and a public announcement system.  There is an hourly direct service to Birmingham New Street in 50 minutes and an irregular direct hourly service to Leicester in 6 minutes.

After arriving in South Wigston, you’ll find several parks and gardens within walking distance of the station platform. If you have the time, be sure to visit the Glen Parva Moat, a local historical landmark.
