Curzon Street Station
Birmingham Curzon Street railway station opened in 1838 and closed in 1966. The surviving Grade I listed entrance building was designed by Philip Hardwick. Built in 1838, it is the world’s oldest surviving piece of monumental railway architecture. In 2010, a new Curzon Street station, partly on the site of the historical station, was proposed as the Birmingham terminus for High Speed 2.
