Opening Wednesday 2nd August!

After 6 long years of hard work, we are very pleased to announce that the restoration of Bricket Wood station is complete, and we are delighted to inform you, along with our operating partner Cheryl Clark, that The Tea Room will be open for business on Wednesday 2nd August from 0900, thereafter opening from 0900 until 1500 on Wednesdays to Saturdays inclusive, all year round*

*Although please note that due to holiday, the Tea Room will be closed temporarily from the end of Friday 11th August, reopening again on Wednesday 30th August.

So do please come along and revel in the Edwardian atmosphere of our beautifully restored, 120-year old station, restored to its rightful place in the heart of the local community and our cherished Abbey Line, after nearly 60 years out of railway use, and nearly 20 years of near-dereliction.

The transformation has been outstanding. From this….

… this….

And from this….

… this…..

… every turn we have strived to honour the original 1903 character of the building.

At the Tea Room you can enjoy delicious tea, coffee, pastries, homemade cakes and lunches, please visit for more details.

We would strongly encourage you to visit the station by sustainable means; walking, cycling, bus or best of all arrive by train! Please note that parking is limited in front of the station, so please park considerately.  Bricket Wood is of course only 8 mins by train from Watford Junction, or 7 mins from St Albans Abbey.

For train times and a route map please visit or for further details of the opportunities available by using the train please visit

The restoration would not have been possible without the full support of the following organisations to whom we shall remain forever grateful:

  • West Midlands Railway
  • Railway Heritage Trust
  • Network Rail
  • Department for Transport
  • Sheldon Peever Studio

And just as importantly, we must thank our incredibly committed band of Trustees, and all the members of the Bricket Wood Station Heritage Trust, for the support that they’ve given to the project, even when it looked far from certain that we would succeed.

A grand opening will be organised in due course – watch this space for details.
