Warwick Parkway railway station is situated north of Warwick in Warwickshire, England. It is owned by Chiltern Railways, making it one of the few stations on the National Rail system not owned by Network Rail. It opened in 2000. It also serves Budbrooke.

Most trains calling here are those provided by Chiltern on its London Marylebone/Leamington Spa/Birmingham Snow Hill/Kidderminster and London Marylebone/Leamington Spa/Stratford routes, augmented by a few London Midland services.

Each platform at the station is equipped with a real-time electronic information departure screen.

The station is staffed for much of the day and there are self-service ticket machines as well as a 'Permit-to-Travel' machine located just inside the entrance to the station. A subway links northbound and southbound platforms. Also there is a small cafe selling drinks and snacks.

Local Stagecoach in Warwickshire bus services 68 and X17 also link the station with Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Coventry. There is also a National Express coach stop outside the station with regular links to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The nearest village to the station is Hampton Magna, about a mile from the station.

The station originally had 737 car parking spaces, which was extended by 222 places at a cost of £2.5 million.[1] Work on the project started on 25 June 2012.[2] Additional spaces were made available in phases from 29 October 2012 with an official opening in late November 2012.[3]
