Great British Railways Headquarters vote

Closes 15 Aug 2022

Opened 5 Jul 2022


In October 2021, the Secretary of State for Transport announced that a competition would take place to find a location for the Great British Railways national headquarters and it would be outside of London.

The competition seeks to recognise a town or city with a rich railway heritage, great links to the national network and with strong public support, creating an amazing opportunity to promote this location as the proud home for the start of a new era in Britain’s railways.

Why your views matter

This stage of the competition gives you the opportunity to vote for your preferred location from the shortlist. The results of this consultive vote will be used to measure the level of support for each place and will be considered as part of final decision making.

Read the expressions of interest submitted by the shortlisted locations.

During this time, Government Ministers and GBRTT representatives will also visit each of the shortlisted towns and cities to gain a greater understanding of each place.
