Train Station

Beverley railway station serves the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

It is located on the Yorkshire Coast Line to Scarborough Railway Station from Hull and is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services.  It was opened in October 1846 by the York and North Midland Railway and gained junction status nineteen years later when the North Eastern Railway opened it's line to Market Weighton and York Railway Station. This latter line fell victim to the Beeching Axe on 29 November 1965.

The station, which was designed by G T Andrews is now a Grade II listed building and has an elegant overall roof.

The station has a basic half-hourly service to Hull and north to Driffield and Bridlington, with some of these trains extended to Filey and Scarborough which is greater at peak times when a number of trains from the Hull direction terminate/start here. Some services to Hull continue on to Doncaster and Sheffield or York.
