Danzey was opened by the Great Western Railway in 1908 when the North Warwickshire Line was opened. Danzey itself only serves a few houses and farms in Danzey Green with the closest settlement of any size Tanworth-in-Arden over a kilometer away. Danzey was originally known as Danzey for Tanworth [1].

Despite the rural nature of the station it had a goods yard and as many as six men worked at the station during the Interwar Period. The station had a signalbox which closed in 1970. The goods yard closed in 1964.

The station is unmanned now, it has no ticket purchasing facilities though is equipped with public information screens and a help/information phone. The footbridge and platform shelters date from 1993. The station is a request stop with an hourly service in both directions most days though does not have a Sunday service. The station is managed by West Midlands Railway.
