Arrived in York on our direct train. So lovely to see an original building for a train station which has equally managed to retain character and yet be improved to meet modern day standards. On our next visit to York we shall use the train again as it worked out cheaper than parking the car.

Housed under a vast curved glazed train shed this station sets out to impress from every angle. A beautifully crafted and elegant structure it combines the old and new without losing too much in the process. It has an exceptional pub on the main southbound platform, the Tap which offers a range of fine beers and wines to accompany a... More

This is a spacious and clean railway station with long curved platforms. Like most stations there is a distinct lack of seats on all of the platforms. The left luggage is not actually on the station itself but down the road at Europcar. Turn right out of the station. There are however a few lockers in the National Railway Museum.... More

York has a very comfortable railway station. The travel centre provides all the information needed and ticket booking facilities. Staff is friendly. Platforms are clean and house cafés and book shops. The waiting rooms have clear glass walls so one can relax and keep a watch for the train from inside. If you have a long wait for the next...

Clean station with lots of signage. Very user friendly and the platforms and their locations were straight forward. An easy walk to all the sights. A clean, bright station.

York requires a few days to full wander and appreciate. Very busy at week ends and school holidays. Do a circular tour go left out of station and work your round. Start and finish a great pub crawl at the Station Tap. Some people never leave it after spending the day working there way arround the bar. Dont miss the... More

My partner is a huge train buff and loved York Station. We traveled to and from York Station with little or to no complaints. Was happy to wait for our trains taking in the beautiful architecture.
