Lambert had been the architect for the Nottingham Victoria railway station and consequently the two buildings shared many similarities in their design.

The station was re-built largely on the same site as the Station Street station, but the entrance was relocated onto Carrington Street.

Amongst these were the city centre stations of Nottingham Victoria, on the Great Central Railway, and Nottingham London Road, on the Great Northern Railway, which are both now closed.

A number of more minor stations served locations outside the city centre, but the only such station to remain open within the city boundaries is Bulwell.

The three storey station building houses information and ticketing facilities, and a restaurant.

The standard gauge station yard has tracks equipped with low level platforms for passenger services, and tracks for freight workings and the stabling of rolling stock.

It is also the junction between the KBD and the Štrbské Pleso – Štrba rack railway, a metre gauge line of which it is the valley terminus.

As such, the station is a gateway to the High Tatras mountain range, a popular tourist destination.

It is the principal railway station of the city of Nottingham and the Greater Nottingham area.

It is also a nodal point on the city's tram system, with a tram stop that was originally called Station Street but is now known as Nottingham Station.

The building used a mix of red brick, terracotta (which was used as a substitute for building stone) and faience (a glazed terracotta) with slate and glazed pitch roofs over the principal buildings.
