Rotherham Central train station is the only station in the South Yorkshire city. It was opened in the mid-19th-century as just Rotherham, but later changed its name to Rotherham and Masborough and then once again in the early ‘50s to its present name. In 2012, the station reopened after an £8.5 million refurbishment which saw the old ‘80s station buildings and ramps fully revamped with modern wooden and metal canopies over the two platforms. The station and the trains that pass through are managed and run by Northern. Facilities include bench seating, a glass-walled footbridge, and a ticket office open every day. There are two direct trains an hour to Doncaster and three an hour to Sheffield.
When you step off at the station, you’ll be in the heart of the city and within walking distance of a ton of attractions including the 15th-century Chapel of Our Lady on the Bridge, the achingly beautiful Rotherham Minster and the bustling indoor Market Hall.
