Droitwich Spa

Droitwich Spa station, Peter Whatley, CCL

Droitwich Spa station serves the historic spa town of Droitwich Spa in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire.

This busy town was known to the Romans as a key source of salt then was developed into a spa during the 19th century.

The station is staffed and is situated at the junction of two lines both operated by West Midlands Railway: Worcester to Birmingham Snow Hill via Kidderminster, and Worcester to Birmingham New Street via Bromgrove.

The station was opened in 1852 as simply Droitwich but was renamed Droitwich Spa when rebuilt in 1899. This latter station has subsequently been replaced by a modern booking hall and waiting room.

Level access is available to both platforms.
