Colwall railway station is a railway station on the Cotswold Line serving the village of Colwall in Herefordshire, England. The station has one platform with seating. There is no ticket office; a passenger-operated Permit to Travel machine is installed, and there has been a ticket machine (for use with credit and debit cards only) since 2015.

The station was opened in 1861, the same year as the Hereford and Worcester Railway Line.

Today services are available direct to London Paddington, Birmingham and Hereford.

The station is close to the Colwall Park Hotel and the (now defunct) Malvern Water bottling plant.

Services[edit]

The station is served by two operators - West Midlands Trains run an hourly service to Hereford and Birmingham New Street via Worcester Foregate Street and Bromsgrove,[1] whilst GWR run a limited service between Hereford and London Paddington via Oxford.[2]
