Daimler Halt was a railway halt in Coventry, England, built by the London and North Western Railway in 1917 and closed in 1965.

It was unusual in that it was built solely for use of employees of the Daimler Company. It became a public station in 1956.[1] There were no station buildings with the exception of rain shelters on the platforms.
