Back in 2022 we were delighted that the Birmingham Commonwealth Games was hosted on our route - here's more about the event:

Celebrating Birmingham

Birmingham welcomed athletes from across the Commonwealth as it hosted the 2022 Games. We're delighted to have had the games hosted on our West Coast Main Line.

Why visit Birmingham?

The games may have ended but there is still so much to see in Birmingham. From the Bull ring shopping centre to the rows and rows of canals, you can spend the day exploring this hub of engineering excellence. The home of the Peaky Blinders and now a whole host of Commonwealth venues, there is so much to do in the city and surrounding areas.

Take a look below at the list of venues from the Commonwealth Games:
