Kingsbury railway station was a railway station which served the village of Kingsbury in Warwickshire, England.

It was opened in 1839 with the building of the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway.[2] The station closed in 1968. The station building has since been demolished, but the station master's house is still to be seen alongside the site of the station.
