Direct Rail Line from Shrewsbury to London Starts Today!

Virgin Trains have launched their new Shrewsbury to London direct rail service. It marks the end of a hard-fought campaign for a direct rail service between Shropshire and London.

There will be two direct services in each direction on a weekday, departing Shrewsbury at 6.39am and 3.24pm, with arrival times in Euston at 9.15am and 5.56pm. The services will call at Telford, Wellington, Wolverhampton, Birmingham New Street, Birmingham International, Coventry and Rugby. Services back to Shropshire leave Euston at 10.23am and 6.23pm, arriving in Shrewsbury at 12.58pm and 8.55pm respectively.
