Somerset Road railway station was a railway station in Edgbaston, Birmingham, England, on the Midland Railway's Birmingham West Suburban Railway. The station had two platforms and was located in a cutting. It was opened in 1876 and closed in 1930 due to lack of patronage.[1]

There are virtually no remains of the station, the only one being a bricked up entrance on the Somerset Road bridge over the present Cross-City Line, between the University railway station and Five Ways railway station.[1]
