Trains to Tamworth

Tamworth station is located at the crossing point of the West Coast Main Line and the Cross Country Line, and it has been an important railway junction since the 1840s. For decades, its strategic location meant the station was a key transfer point for the Royal Mail, with over 2,000 bags passing through each night. The original station, which opened in 1839, was demolished in 1961 and replaced with today’s buildings. From the station, it is a ten-minute walk into the town centre, the main shopping area around George Street, and historic Tamworth Castle. The Norman castle was built in the 1080s, although there have been fortifications on this site since Anglo-Saxon times. From AD 584 to 918, Tamworth was the seat of the Kingdom of Mercia, which dominated much of what is now central England. The castle is open to visitors throughout the year (weekends only between October and March).
