    The quick walk into the town centre is closed for building works, follow the signs for a slightly less scenic (is anywhere in this town scenic?!) route.

    Huge lifts to all platforms big enough for bikes etc., but just not obvious to find when you arrive from the ticket hall. Just go onto Platform 1 and turn left: the lift is opposite Customer Services.

    There's a train guard with the loudest voice in the world ever working here. He makes the whole platform shake with his shout. So loud it's hilarious!

    Steve Bailey · June 4, 2013

    There is a new station announcer who sounds like he should be a game show host.

    Hazel Nicholson · May 26, 2013
  • Jade P.

    The train from Cov to Leamington Spa and vice versa is almost always late. On the rare occasions that it is on time, you have to sit down in shock ;-)

    Amazing 60s masterpiece. So light and airy it appears to float.

    Technically I got sent here. Does that mean everyone will ignore me

    Not all trains are displayed on the board. I've missed several as trains have not been displayed Check with a member if staff if you're unsure.

    Like concrete? Your in the right city.

    90% of the time, the cross country trains are late.

    There's a ladies lounge on platform one so you can sit & do your make up & read cosmo in a warmer quieter space while we freeze our nads of

    Don't get on to any London Midland train, if you have only got a #virgin only# ticket.

    YuYu · May 18, 2012
  • Matan D.

    panic from lack of info of cancelations

    Matan Duveen · April 29, 2012
  • Brian B.

    Need to get to London early? The first two trains of the day classify as off peak. So if you can make the 5:50 or 6:11 you can save money!

    Brian Blackmore · January 14, 2012
  • Mark Stefan W.

    If leaving the Station for the City Centre by foot, there is another route over the Ring Road which takes u towards the Council Hse and CovUni more quickly. Just turn R out of the Station, then L.

    Mark Stefan Wiszowaty · December 19, 2011
  • Brian B.

    The platform 1 to London & the overtaking tips are *generally* true. But in times of major disruption anything can happen, and it's first out not first in the the overtaking rule.

    Brian Blackmore · December 16, 2011
  • Diane A.

    Get out of coventry lol

    Diane Akinmolasire · December 4, 2011
  • Robin

    Don't buy from any of the outlets in the station unless you are in a rush, the retail park across the road has cheaper and nicer things. Also there is a newsagents nearby opposite the bus stops

    Robin · November 13, 2011
  • Tracy P.

    If you're just staying for one day, you can pay for car parking before you catch your train! Useful to avoid queues on the way back!

    Tracy Playle · November 9, 2011
  • Remy F.

    Self serve machines quicker than the people. However only machines left of the ticket office accepts cash

    Remy Foster · September 28, 2011

    Pumpkin cafe do nice milkshakes.

    Simi · September 7, 2011
  • Paul H.

    The tip about trains overtaking isn't true. A slow train will either be held on the platform to make way for a virgin train or it'll happen at Birmingham international! Be wary when choosing trains!

    Paul Hadsley · August 26, 2011
  • Sean J.

    If you've got a long wait there is a Burger King not to far out of the station

    Sean Jarvis · March 22, 2011
  • Simon S.

    If you have a season ticket friends and family can travel with you off peak for £1 for a return ticket.

    Simon Shiel · March 11, 2011
  • Simon S.

    Don't think you can buy your ticket on the train. You can't and you being thrown off slows the the trip down for the rest of us.

    Simon Shiel · March 11, 2011
  • Liam P.

    Not a friendly or convenient station if you're travelling with a bike, pram or wheelchair. Be warned!

    There's always plenty of room in coach A (quiet zone) - Keep walking

    The mochas from Pumpkins are really bad!

    Michal Charemza · December 24, 2010
  • Stuart D.

    Travel to Birmingham on a Virgin Train and it's cheaper and faster, wahey! Oh and WHSmiths is expensive (as expected). There is a newsagent closeby.

    Stuart Dessler · November 26, 2010
  • Dan H.

    @joseph the coffee in the pumpkin shop is equally as awful.

    Dan Hall · November 22, 2010
  • Nathan O.

    the peak time is before 9am, between 3:30pm-6:00pm

    Nathan Ou · September 21, 2010
  • Brian B.

    It's the ladies lounge, us gents shouldn't be there, and yes that includes you Mr mayor!

    Brian Blackmore · August 23, 2010
  • Brian B.

    Trains between Coventry and Birmingham rarely overtake each other, thus generally your best to get on the first train to brum even if it's a slow one.

    Brian Blackmore · August 17, 2010
  • Sam E.

    Virgin Trains to London Euston almost always depart from platform 1. Virgin Trains to Birmingham New St almost always depart from platform 3.

    Sam England · May 18, 2010
  • Andrew M.

    Make sure you get a seat before all the college kids get on the train!

    Andrew McCurdy · March 5, 2010
  • Joseph S.

    The coffee at the Ritazza coffee stand is the worst coffee ever.
