Articles about Curzon Street Station
Curzon Street Station is the oldest railway terminus in the world and was once a vibrant hub of trade and industry. It was the terminus of the first railway line to link London to Birmingham, which was engineered by Robert Stephenson.
The station was originally known as Birmingham Station before New Street was constructed.
The surviving station entrance building is Grade I listed. The surrounding and adjoining buildings and platforms have all been demolished, leaving only the entrance building, which sits alone and vacant next to Millennium Point and BCU’s new Parkside campus. The exterior walls bear the scars of where they would have joined a much larger structure, when the station was in use.
