The station was opened as Droitwich in 1852 by the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway. It was later taken over by the Great Western Railway. It was renamed Droitwich Spa following a rebuilding in 1899. The station was linked to the Midland Railway's line between Birmingham and Gloucester via a branch line.

While Birmingham Snow Hill was closed between 1967 and 1995 services via Kidderminster went to Birmingham New Street instead. Droitwich Spa is managed by West Midlands Trains who operate all services to the station.
