Ribblehead railway station lies in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It was constructed in the late-19th century by the then Midland Railway company. Almost a century later, the station fell into disrepair and was closed in the early ‘70s. In the mid ‘1980s, the station management was taken over by British Rail who reopened with just one southbound platform before opening a second platform a decade later. Interesting, in the 19th century, the waiting room was used by the local vicar to hold services. The original stone station buildings are still intact, though they have been transformed into a visitor centre with exhibits on the area’s history. This is an unstaffed station with no facilities for buying tickets, so they must either be bought online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. Facilities at the station include timetable posters and bench seating, but little else. There’s a direct train to Carlisle in 1 hour 27 minutes every two hours throughout the day and one to Leeds every two hours in 1 hour 18 minutes.

When you disembark at Ribblehead railway station, you can lace up your boots and go hiking in the rolling moorland of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. While you’re there, try and catch a glimpse of the beautiful Ribblehead Viaduct.
