How to Get to Walsall by Train

Walsall Station is managed by London Midland, who also operate services to and from the town. Apart from local trains to the nearby towns of Cannock and Rugeley, the nearest major station which operates trains to Walsall is Birmingham New Street. When travelling from other areas of the UK to Walsall, it is often necessary to travel via Birmingham New Street. There is also a service from the city of Wolverhampton to Walsall, but this runs less frequently than the trains from Birmingham. The train station at Walsall is located in the centre of the town, so other forms of public transport are easily accessible upon arrival.


The town of Walsall has a long history as a centre for industry, particularly in the leather trade. Celebrating this affinity with the leather industry is the Walsall Leather Museum, located on the site of a Victorian leather factory. Visitors to the museum can learn of Walsall's important role in the leather industry's history, especially in the manufacture of saddles. The town's reputation as a maker of fine saddles is represented by the nickname of Walsall Football Club: the Saddlers. Walsall Arboretum was first opened in 1874 and is the main public park in the town. Covering an area of 80 acres, it is home to a boating lake, a bowling green, a play area for children and a municipal golf course. Much of the Arboretum is now a conservation area.
