  York Station 19.1.05

Take time if you are at the station to admire the roof. The present station is in fact York's 2nd and was designed by Thomas Prosser in 1877. It is slightly unusual in that it is built on a curve in the track and has a magnificent roof covering 4 of the tracks. The roof is supported on comparatively slender cast iron Corinthian pillars. The whole station was refurbished in 1984. It is now a listed historical building in its own right.

Address: York Railway Station, Queen Street
