Designed by the architect James Pigott Pritchett and opened in 1850, Huddersfield station delivers train passengers straight to the centre of town and the cultural hub of St George's Square, with the nearby retail centres, restaurants and Victorian architecture all within easy reach. A Grade I-listed building, the station underwent a £1 million refurbishment in 2009, and as a result, it won the Europa Nostra, an award for outstanding European Architecture. Huddersfield was also one of poet John Betjeman's favourite early railway stations. As you leave the station, note the Head of Steam pub, which pays homage to the station's rich steam train heritage. In fact, some steam trains still pass through the station, including the Cotton Mill Express and the Scarborough Flyer. Steam buffs should head to platform 2, where they'll find a carriage with a plaque commemorating 100 years of the famous Dutch heritage railway line Stoomtram Hoorn-Medemblik.
