Redcar Central railway station is the main station in the North Yorkshire coastal town of Redcar. It was opened in the mid-19th century originally as Middlesbrough & Redcar Railway with just one platform, but it was extended in the 20th century.

The pretty old brick train shed is still intact and has been converted into business units. Today, the busy station, which sees a footfall of around 350,000 people annually, and the trains that pass through are managed and run by Northern. The station is staffed with a ticket office that opens between Monday and Saturday in the mornings and early afternoon. There’s also an electronic ticket machine, a waiting room on both sides of the tracks, bench seating, and digital displays with passenger information. There are two to three trains an hour direct to Middlesbrough in 13 minutes and several direct services a day to Durham in 1 hour 8 minutes.
