Train Travel in York

York is the quintessential train city with a rich history as one of the most important points on the UK rail map and the largest railway museum in the world.

York’s rail story began in the mid 1800s when George Hudson, formally a draper, entered politics and invested £30,000 in the North Midland Railway, promising to make all railways come to York. George eventually fell from grace but the commitment to York rail was cemented.

York’s first rail station was designed by George Stephenson and built in 1839. It’s current edifice dates back to 1877 and is regarded as one of the finest examples of civil engineering of the Victorian era.

Arriving at the beautiful station on Station Road, ensures that your visit to York begins in style. Aside from the Victorian splendour there’s a range of modern facilities including cash machines and café bars, and essentials such as toilets and baby-changing facilities.
