History

Grand Station, formally known as Wolverhampton’s Low Level Station opened originally in 1854, was constructed for the use of the Shrewsbury & Birmingham Railway, the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway, and the Birmingham, Wolverhampton & Dudley Railway.

The station building is built of Blue Bricks with ornate stone decorations. A grand entrance hall with a high an elaborate ceiling led to the platforms as well as offices refreshment room and waiting rooms. The popularity of the Higher Level Station caused the closure of this one in 1972 after that it was used as a parcel distribution depot untill 1981 when it closed for good.

In 2012, our proposal to transform the empty building into a unique venue for weddings, exhibitions and conferences was accepted, putting our plans into motion. The transformation included some fantastic modern features yet also preservation of key historical items in the building.

There is no other venue such as this one in Wolverhampton, or in fact the Midlands – with its history combined with its refurbishment gives you a place to hold your event in style.
