Tile Hill station was opened in 1850,and was originally known as Allesley Lane,until 1857 it was renamed to Allesley Gate,it assumed its current name of Tile Hill in 1864.

The level crossing adjacent to the station lasted until 2004,where a large bridge was built to carry road traffic over the railway and a footbridge built to connect the station platforms,Level crossings at Berkswell and Canley were also removed to upgrade the line for more high speed trains.
