Large train station with plenty of retail opportunities. There are several cafes for commuters, cash points and shops within the station to make the most of the vast space.

I have used York station on several occasions & have always found the staff to be cheerful & very helpful. The main concourse is clean & litter free, as are the platforms. All the platforms are easily accessible by those with limited mobility. The train arrival/departure information is kept up to date & is easily found in all areas

A large railway station with lots of trains going all over the UK. The National Railway Museum is just a short walk away. Cafe's and drinks available on the station or just outside. Frequent buses are available right outside the station with the City Centre very easily walked.

Its one of the better "out of London stations" well worth popping in when you are in York if you are interested in Trains and the Railway

It's a nice station. Well served by the national railway system, with many destinies options. There are some food and drinks options if you need then. It's close to downtown (about 10 minutes walk) and well served by taxis and buses.

Nothing to write home about if you ask me. We passed through it to get the shuttle bus to the races. The food in the shops was very expensive so watch out.
