About York Station

York's location in the north of England, close to Scotland, makes it central to Britain as a whole, so it’s no surprise that York's train station was the largest in the world when it opened in 1877. Although the railway stations in London later eclipsed it, its location approximately halfway between the English and Scottish capital cities of London and Edinburgh means York remains a very important station, even today.

Known for its unusual curved iron and glass roof, the station’s architecture and design are also main draws. Unfortunately, it was heavily damaged by bombing during World War II. After the war the station was renovated, with careful attention devoted to maintaining its 19th-century characteristics. In 1968, it was designated as a Grade II Listed historic building.

York Station remains a gateway to the city for many visitors today and a great starting point for your journey around Britain. Located close to everything that York has to offer, York train station is the first port of call for many of the city's millions of annual visitors.
