Shirebrook railway station serves the town of Shirebrook in Derbyshire, England. The station is on the Robin Hood Line, 35 km (21½ miles) north of Nottingham towards Worksop.

The line and the station were built by the Midland Railway. It was renamed Shirebrook West, because eventually Shirebrook had three stations, the others being Shirebrook North built by the LD&ECR [Cupit,T., Taylor, W., (1984 2nd.Ed.) "The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway," Trowbridge: The Oakwood Press] in 1897 and Shirebrook South on the line to Pleasley.
