Curzon Street Station is the world's oldest piece of monumental railway architecture 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 surviving station entrance building is Grade I listed, testament to it's architectural significance. 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 station closed in 1966. Various temporary uses and owners were found until 2006, since when it has stood vacant.
For one day only Birmingham's Hidden Spaces is opening the doors of the station, offering the public a rare chance to explore the building as part of Birmingham Heritage Week.

The open day is free of charge and there is no need to book.
Doors will be open from 10am-4pm.
