Wilmcote railway station serves the village of Wilmcote, about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, England. The station is run by London Midland. It s served by both London Midland and Chiltern Railways trains.
The Great Western Railway opened the present two-platform station in 1908, at the same time as the inauguration of its North Warwickshire Line, which created a new main line route between Birmingham and Cheltenham Spa.

London Midland serves Wilmcote with hourly local trains between Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham Snow Hill. Chiltern Railways serves Wilmcote with to 10 trains per day each way between Stratford-upon-Avon and Leamington Spa, half of which are through services that continue to London Marylebone.
