Redditch station serves the ‘new’ town of Redditch in the Redditch district of Worcestershire.

Since being designated a New Town in 1964, Redditch has mixed the old with the new. The Kingfisher Shopping Centre is opposite the station.

Redditch’s world renowned needle making industry is preserved through the Forge Mill Needle Museum, with the remains of the 12th century monastic Bordesley Abbey nearby. Redditch was also famous for manufacturing fishing tackle and Royal Enfield motorcycles.

The station is staffed and is served by West Midlands Railway on the Cross-City Line. The original station was opened in 1859 but was relocated in 1992 as part of the building of the Kingfisher Centre bus station.

There is level access to the platform.
