Lots of stairs so not good if you have heavy luggage & left luggage is £5 a bag - why can't they have luggage lockers like most modern stations?

We went to London from York railway station & parked our car in the long stay car park from sat am until mon 3.30 pm not only did parking cost us £43.50 !!! But on setting off we saw rats in daylight running around near the ticket barrier exit , out car made a horrendous noise all the way home & upon checking it out discovered rats had made a nest under the bonnet left rubbish & poo all over & eaten the air filter & various wires ! Rang customer services to make a complaint & find out about compensation for fixing this ,but was told unfortunately its not their problem ! A very expensive car park ! BE WARNED !

It may be large and old but it's very draughty and one of the coldest places in York in Winter. Awful access for dropping people off and picking travellers up. Difficult to find a space in the vastly over-priced short-term car park due to them giving away half the spaces to staff and car-hire vehicles. Ridiculous. To make it worse, you have cars, taxis and buses vying for drop-off points and blocking the exit to the short term, which is then made even worse by traffic lights and a pedestrian crossing so everything snarls up at busy times. It really needs sorting out. The York Tap pub has an amazing array of beers with knowledgeable staff, but with tile and marble and bare walls, it becomes very 'echoey' when busy, which makes it hard to hold a conversation (but I recommend the pies they serve daily, from Richardsons, an excellent local butcher.

Very olde world, reminded me of Harry Potter. Very easy access. Places to wait and get drinks on platform. Nothing to dislike really.
