Birkdale Train Station in Southport is battling it out for a place in the final to be crowned ‘The UK’s best loved station’ and winner of World Cup of Stations 2023. Thanks to your support, yesterday Birkdale won the North West Group and has progressed to the semi-finals.

Congratulations to everyone involved in making Birkdale the best loved station in the North West.

As a reminder, Birkdale station has made the semi-final thanks to the work it has done with local volunteer groups Birkdale Civic Society and The Station Master’s House.

The two groups, along with Merseyrail, have created a community library with 5000+ books including many large print. The Station Master’s House has three meetings rooms all with internet connected TVs and ethernet ports, and Wi-Fi connectivity throughout. One of the meeting rooms is a computer suite with six high spec PCs free to use for members (and membership is free).

You can vote for Birkdale station until midnight tonight (Thursday 25 May). The link on Twitter is  The website link is
