The historic railway station building, built in 1847, was under threat of demolition in the early 1980s. Thanks to a local group, the Railway and Steam Traction Society, listed status was obtained, with the building celebrating its 150th anniversary in 1997. Building work won a special Ian Allen conservation award. As of 2008, the railway station building is occupied by a local veterinary practice.

The Atherstone Red Lion Hotel is an independently owned and operated traditional coaching inn dating back to the 1500s, situated in the heart of Atherstone. It has been lovingly restored and updated to provide everything you would expect from a hotel which prides itself on being at the heart of the community.

By the late Tudor period Atherstone had become a centre for leatherworking, clothmaking, metalworking and brewing. Local sheep farmers and cattle graziers supplied wool and leather to local tanners and shoemakers (an industry that continued until the 1970s), while metalworkers, locksmiths and nailers fired their furnaces with local coal and the alemakers supplied thirsty palates on market days.
