aka "The Worst Toilet in Scotland". Also, no left luggage facilities (and a random hut that involves walking out to the street, along the roadway and back down a turnback does not count).

A very spacious station with clear signs, a few shops, restaurants and cash machines. A passage to the National Railway Museum is a great idea that saves so much time as the walk around is a bit of a trek.

No complaints here! It was mid-week but the trains came on time and we got seats both ways. The station was clean and the staff friendly. The toilets were well maintained and FREE! Well done York.

Travelled to and from york. Had lunch in Costa coffee which is on the bridge. Very cramped but it is an old office there's a great view from there. Nice clean station with lots of shops, eating places.

There isn't too much to say about a railway station but this one is usually clean and everything is clearly labeled. The building is very nice and is about 5 minutes from the town centre and there are hotels quite close by. There are always taxis leaving directly outside the station as well. One thing to note is that the... More
