“Good range of facilities”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Lovely station friendly helpful staff. Husband had to find staff member to unlock baby change facilities in ladies was a pain, took a while - please find a better way hard if on your own with a child and buggy. I have to say probably the best baby change I've been in, very clean. Lots of destinations well serviced and easy to get around. Choice of food coffee places shame one coffee shop refused to even sell me hot water to heat up baby food but helpful station staff directed me to some others who were obliging and gave me hot water for free.... Was very disgusted with coffee shop next to Burger King ( missed their name).

“History”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Bustling station with plenty of history. Steam trains often run through in the summer. Large concourse no barriers so you have access to the platforms if you just wish to train spot.

“Exploring York”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A very busy station to many destinations. Very clean and well maintained. I love the old fashioned atmosphere with all the modern facilities - it's great. Plenty of choice for refreshments and a nice clean waiting room. One of the oldest railway stations in the country.
