Trains to the National Railway Museum
The National Railway Museum perhaps unsurprisingly is just a couple of minutes walk from York Station and well signposted on exiting the station. For a fast and accessible route to the museum turn left outside of the station and walk past the Royal York Hotel. Turn left at Leeman Road and walk through the tunnel.
Alternatively, you can also access the museum from the footbridge located within the station.
