Travelled to New Street from Euston and what a contrast between the two stations! New Street is now very modern and also has a good array of shops (including John Lewis) and interesting places to eat. A very pleasant place to pass through.

Very busy hub to anywhere in England. Very well laid out. Use the train line app to save time. Plenty of places to grab a bite or a snack on the run.

The trains are below ground, the main concourse is on ground level and there are shops and cafes above ground too.

Hi , You need to see on the station website or call them ! I’m not a official representative of this train station or any other and I do not work for British railway! I’m just a traveler and reviewer 🙂
