Leicester Train Station

Leicester Train Station is managed by East Midlands Trains and is a major stop on our train services to and from London.

The impressive Victorian train station was refurbished completely in 2012 and now boasts an open plan concourse and retail area with a large coffee shop, retail stores and a new Ticket Office with easily accessible facilities including an induction loop and low-level windows.

Access to the platforms is over the revamped footbridges, with lifts to all platforms, most of which have been resurfaced to improve safety. All waiting areas and toilet facilities have also been upgraded throughout the train station.
