Trains to Clapham

Clapham may share a name with one of the busiest train stations in the UK, but this station in rural North Yorkshire is a whole world away from the relentless pace of the capital, with just 7,624 passenger journeys starting or ending at the isolated mock-Tudor station 48 miles north-west of Leeds. But those that do make the journey have a treat in store for them. Nestled at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Clapham station is a gateway for exploring hundreds of square miles of some of the most peaceful, wild and unspoilt landscapes in the country. Clapham village, a mile away from the station, is the starting point for trails up nearby Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks and even boasts its own waterfall and showcave.
