Bordesley railway station is a small railway station serving the area of Bordesley in Birmingham, England located between Birmingham Moor Street and Small Heath stations. Pre-nationalisation a GWR station on their main line from London (Paddington) to Birkenhead (Woodside) the current minimal level of service at the station is provided by London Midland services between Birmingham Snow Hill and Stratford-upon-Avon.
The platforms are above street level, as the railway line here is on a viaduct. The only public access is from Coventry Road, directly underneath the railway bridge.
Since May 2007, the station has been served by a single weekly parliamentary train in one direction only. Currently this is the 13:19 train from Whitlocks End to Great Malvern which calls at Bordesley at 13:37  on Saturdays only.
The station primarily serves as a match day stop for nearby Birmingham City Football Club, and additional services stop there when there are home fixtures.
The station still carries the painted lettering "BR(W) Bordesley Cattle Station", and "Bordesley Cattle Station GWR" from the time when, as part of the Great Western Railway and later British Rail's (Western) region, it was used to bring cattle from the countryside to the Bull Ring markets.
