The Queen Visits the West Midlands

The Queen visited the West Midlands to officially open the new Birmingham New Street Station


The Queen arrived in Birmingham to officially open the £750 million redevelopment of New Street Train Station.

The last time the Queen was in Birmingham was back in 2012 and large crowds arrived to catch a glimpse of Her Majesty. 

Accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, the monarch arrived aboard the Royal Train to officially open the train station. 

Her Majesty stepped on to Platform 2A as her train pulled in, wearing pink.
