Ilkley station is the terminus of the Wharfedale Line, with services from the West Yorkshire town to neighbouring Bradford and Leeds. The station dates back to 1865, a time when Ilkley and neighbouring Ben Rhydding were growing in popularity as spa towns, which accelerated with the arrival of the railway. The station itself was recently refurbished, and delivers travellers from the train right into the heart of the town, a short walk from many shops, pubs, and the legendary Betty's Tea Rooms. Ilkley remains a popular tourist destination, today, whether for the shops - especially the popular Victorian parades of Grove and Brook Streets - or the surrounding countryside. Ilkley Moor, which looks down upon the town, is home to the famous Cow and Calf rocks, a popular climbing spot, and the town centre is the official starting point for the Dales Way long-distance hiking route to Bowness-in-Windemere in the Lake District.
