York station is an icon and a reminder of the grand age of steam. With its wide sweeping platforms and wrought Iron work any photographer can have a field day.

We arrived here from Bristol & was shocked to see the beautiful building and metal work, we stopped to admire our surroundings. Really helpful staff & lots of clear sign posts too made it easy to get around and eventually exit. Busy place but worth a look

The facilities at York station aren't bad, there's burger king, amt, Costa and a couple of pubs which aren't badly priced though spent 3 hours sat in the freezing cold waiting room... More

The station was well signed and it was easy to navigate. There is the usual coffee shops, bar, etc. I was surprised to see... More

Alighting at York is sensational. The hugh roof structure is marvellous. Walk up and over the bridge with a Costa Coffee occupying the old buffet room. In the evening when the... More
