Hinckley Railway Station is located in the town of Hinckley, situated halfway between Leicester and Coventry. The first railway line here was built in 1861 between Hinckley and Nuneaton, and Hinckley Railway Station was built in the same year. At first, this line was only 4.5 miles long, but this was extended in 1862 to connect the line to Wigston Magna, near Leicester.
The original station was built south of the town in open fields, but as the town grew over the next 150 years, the station became more important to the local economy. Redevelopments over the years have seen the platforms rebuilt and new private offices added.
Facilities at Hinckley Railway Station include 63 parking spaces of which 2 are accessible, and bicycle stands. Toilets can be found on the Main Concourse, step-free access and wheelchairs are available. For more information about how CrossCountry can help please see our priority seating and travel assistance options for your journey.
Hinckley Station is served by several bus and tram lines so continuing your journey via public transport is easy. CrossCountry serves popular routes to this station such as Leicester to Hinckley, Birmingham to Hinckley and Nuneaton to Hinckley.
