Curzon Street Station

Curzon Street Station

Originally known as Birmingham Station, the Grade I Listed Curzon Street Station is the oldest railway terminus in the world and was once a hub of activity linking Birmingham to London. The station entrance sits next to Millennium Point and Birmingham City University's Parkside campus and will form a central part of the vast HS2 rail terminus and further redevelopment of the eastern side of Birmingham city centre if plans for the new high-speed rail network are approved.
