Historical Station

York being connected to the history of the Railways makes it an obvious place to visit. Fast moving and packed, like any other station.

This is quite a unique museum. Initially thought that it was meant for children but was pleasantly surprised.

The first York railway station was a temporary wooden building outside the walls of the city, opened in 1839 by the York and North Midland Railway.

Arriving at this grand Victorian railway station gives you a real taste of the golden age of railways. Just glance at the curved roof, the iron supports graced with the crests of grand old railway companies long gone, and the column frontage. Even if you don't travel by train, just pop in a take a look.....this was real Empire Glory!!!

I went to change my baby's nappy however the changing cubicle was simply a normal cubicle in the ladies toilet, it was not large enough for me to take the pushchair... More

This is a very busy station with many platforms. The staff, however, could not be more helpful. They were very willing to help me change platforms as I was struggling with bags. Well done Station Staff!

One of the good LNER English railway stations. Nothing overly spectacular, but on the main line to Scotland. Try grabbing a snack when the train pulls in and getting back on the train before it leaves. If you don't make it, I apologize - you have to be quick. Remember, English trains are pretty much on time (well, most of... More
