Hinckley railway station serves the towns of Hinckley and Burbage in Leicestershire, England.

Contents

The station is on the CrossCountry Birmingham to Peterborough Line between Leicester and Birmingham New Street and is about 4 miles (6 km) east of Nuneaton.

The station is owned by Network Rail and managed by East Midlands Trains, who do not operate services from this station. Only CrossCountry operate trains from here.

A full range of tickets for travel is available from the station ticket office when it is open (0640—1300 hrs), or at other times from the guard on the train at no extra cost.

History

The station was opened in 1861 as part of the South Leicestershire Railway, which was taken over by the London and North Western Railway in 1867.

Services

There are services to Leicester and Birmingham New Street: usually one train in each direction every hour. A few weekday peak hour trains on the service between New Street and Stansted Airport via Cambridge call at Hinckley, but most pass through without stopping.

Buses operate from outside the station around the town and also to Magna Park and Lutterworth.
