Nottingham Train Station facilities

Nottingham station, opened in 1839, once stood outside the city, but as more people moved into the area, and the city grew, the station was soon engulfed, and now this Grade II Listed building sits at the heart of the town. Overlooking the canal and in close proximity to the Castle, the Baroque Revival architecture of the exterior is impressively stylish and imposing.

In July 1939, the station suffered a targetted bombing by the Irish Republican Army, under their Sabotage Plan, or S-Plan, focused on destroying the UK’s infrastructure. Several other stations were also attacked, including Birmingham and Coventry, which later went on to suffer even more damage in World War II.

The station as you see it today is the result of a large redevelopment programme in 2010 that was designed to restore some original segments, whilst improving the passenger experience by adding an extra platform, more shops, and making the second grand entrance a traffic-free zone, providing a safe route to all the attractions of Nottingham.
