Good links for the railways system and for further afield outside York. Very quaint and the bus and taxi system is right outside the main entrance. Right outside the wall of York and feeder routes by car is brill.

Will love this station. Not quite the original but many of the nineteenth century features have been carefully preserved. Complete with train spotters!

The York Tap is an ideal location to wait, service is good and would recommend the Chilli pork pies or apple pork pies with a cold pint

A very busy station that seems to function better than some of the smaller ones I have used.Plenty of seating on the platforms,information stations manned by staff who are well informed.Toilet facilities that are immaculate ,the station itself is like something out of Harry Potter.
