In 2010, a new Curzon Street station, partly on the site of the historical station, was proposed as the Birmingham terminus for High Speed 2.
MPs are set to vote on the “third reading” - the final stage - of the High Speed Rail Bill, a law which will authorise construction of the first part of the line.
You will have the chance to visit the reconstruction of the laboratory of Alexander Fleming as it was in 1928. It was Duke Wellington who decided to settle down in Apsley House after he carried the decisive victory over Napoleon at Waterloo.
He then displayed his amazing art collection of paintings in Apsley House that is open to public since then.
It was the terminus for both the London and Birmingham Railway and the Grand Junction Railway and the companies had adjacent, parallel platforms but there were no through trains.
The Grand Junction Railway arrived at Curzon Street in 1839: Although the line had opened in 1837, one year before the London and Birmingham Railway, it originally ran to a temporary terminus at Vauxhall.
