Trains to Selby

Selby is the site of the first ever railway station in Yorkshire. Back then services were reliant on a lifting railway bridge over the River Ouse - which was often up, as ship traffic had priority. Much has changed since then, but the station's original 1834 structure can still be seen from platform 3. The current station dates from 1840, and despite several rebuilds it still feels like a throwback to the Golden Age of rail, with a sprawling layout and decorative canopies. The station boasts excellent transport links, with regular trains to Hull, Manchester Piccadilly, York and London Kings Cross. Selby station itself is less than half from the town centre, and the walk takes visitors right up to the medieval Abbey, the birthplace of Henry I and home to the famous 'Washington Window'. Other highlights include the Trans Pennine Trail cycleway and the Yorkshire Paintball Centre, both a short bus ride away.

Station details & facilities

Selby's main concourse has a staffed ticket counter, and leads out onto platform 1, where you'll find a ticket machine, toilets and a bike rack. If the concourse is closed, use the side entrances by the car park. A footbridge leads to platforms 2 and 3 - to reach them step-free, request a line crossing from station staff. Platform 1 is divided into A and B ends; 1A is to the left as you exit the concourse, and 1B to the right.
