Cross Gates railway station is located just west of Leeds along the Selby Line. It was opened in 1834 by the Leeds and Selby Railway, but closed 6 years later. In 1850, it reopened but the small village station was little used. Extensions later in the 19th century saw passenger numbers quickly increase and Cross Gates became a busy commuter station. It went through further changes and upgrades in the coming years including a full move of the station further down the tracks. Like many stations in Northern England, freighter goods trains stopped passing through Cross Gates in the mid 1960s and the old buildings were demolished in the 1970s in favour of simpler, more modern structures. The station and the trains that pass through are operated by Northern. The station is staffed part time and has a ticket office, digital displays, and a passenger announcement system which provides train information. There are several trains every hour throughout peak weekdays to Leeds taking just 9 minutes and Bradford Interchange in 38 minutes.

Cross Gates might be small, but that hasn’t stopped it from having the Crossgates Shopping Centre just next to the station where you can get some serious wallet-busting retail therapy.
