I try to call in here a few times a year when I am driving past, mainly because I am always impressed how a successful business has been built on fairly unpromising ground. The context is that you are in a café at a railway...More

On my last 2 visits, cafe not open despite signs on main road and in parking area saying cafe open. Unlikely to visit again.

So much gets said about Hellifield station but a very disappointing trip. Yes, it had a great history but not a place worth visiting now. Skipton station is so much nicer. A very empty place which is unkept away from the main building area.

The station itself has such a lot of history, and is an amazing structure. we'd gone to see a steam train come through and we werent disappointed. The cafe is amazing, the breakfast is to die for. Brilliant atmosphere.

Very nice café selling reasonably priced drinks and snacks, plus postcards and some railway related items. You can get useful information here about train times and nearby attractions too.

Hellifield Station is the normal stop for steam trains to take on water in preparation for the Settle Carlisle, so it gives you an opportunity to photograph engines at rest
