Daniel Defoe named Settle 'The capital of an isolated little kingdom of its own, surrounded by barren hills', and it's through those stunning barren hills of the Yorkshire Dales that trains trundle to reach the isolated kingdom. Heaving with Yorkshire charm, the town is full of wonderful independent shops, cafes and inns and draws visitors from miles around to its fell walking, waterfalls and wilderness. Famously the starting point of the Settle to Carlisle Line with its breathtaking views, Victorian architecture and huge viaducts, Settle, the station, is equally picturesque. Many of the station's 19th-century features have been renovated and remain intact, including the old station water tower and signal box, which is now a tourist attraction and open to the public during the summer months. Despite its traditional appearance, Settle operates a thoroughly modern service, with regular trains leaving platform 1 for Leeds and platform 2 on the two-hour journey to Carlisle.

Station details & facilities

Getting through Settle's quaint station concourse is a treat in itself, with a ticket kiosk, which is staffed on a part-time basis, and a gift shop selling a cornucopia of railway memorabilia. Toilet facilities, bike lock-ups and ticket machines can be found at the front of the station. A period footbridge links the station's two well-kept platforms, which are both home to wooden bench seating. Platform 2 also has a stone-clad waiting room.
