Local Area and Facilities:
At Arley station we have a number of facilities for passengers' convenience. We have a booking office at which passengers can buy tickets for the trains, there is also a waiting room and a platform shelter so that in inclement weather you can remain warm and dry! We also have a sales kiosk selling mainly second-hand books, magazines and railway items.
On the platform is a refreshment kiosk usually open at weekends only that sells traditional homemade cakes, homemade sandwiches, hot and cold drinks and other confectionery. There are also toilets available station and The Engine House Visitor Centre. Both sites have baby-changing facilities.
There's plenty to do in and around Highley.
The Visitor Centre is a 150-yard walk from the station along a smooth and fairly level path. This is a must for a visit with its display of locomotives, carriages and other railway artefacts. Other facilities include a children’s play area, restaurant and gift-shop.
