I travelled to York by train in February 2108 as part of my 2 day tour to York. The Station has good bus and taxi links outside and the Town centre is only about a 5 min walk.

We visited York for the weekend and travelled by train and it was a real pleasure to see this important building which goes back to a bygone era but is still bustling and busy serving all of todays transport needs.
