Just the ticket: Bus connection puts museum on the train line

Ross Crawford 11th Jul, 2021

TRANSPORT Museum Wythall is taking advantage of the West Midlands Trains service on The Shakespeare Line between Birmingham and Stratford by revising its free bus service to stop at Wythall station.

The station is just a few minutes from the museum and meets trains from both ends of the line.

The Shakespeare Line, with its hourly train service frequency at Wythall station, makes it possible to take a day off driving to visit the museum with the pleasant Warwickshire countryside a bonus on the journey.

The train service from Snowshill takes in Shirley and Whitlocks End before arriving at Wythall station,

Visitors from further afield will be able to make connections from mainline services into Birmingham New Street at Moor Street station and within 40 minutes arrive on site to enjoy more than three hours at one of the most significant collections in the UK.

A café is also available on site along with a well-stocked shop.

The current free heritage bus service will be revised to connect at Wythall station with two trains in each direction on Saturdays / Sundays / Wednesdays from July 24 until September 5 inclusive.

This service can be used even if not visiting the museum, also stopping on request near to Beckett’s Farm, Wythall Church and the Chapel Lane Caravan Club site.
