Was up in York visiting the Railway museum and we had to walk through York station to get to the museum. Great place to have a coffee especially the Costa signal box. So much Victorian iron work and building to look at. A very busy station and having a glass roof makes the place feel so open. Spent a little time here and loved the atmosphere.

Situated in an old signal box on a platform. A good place to wait for a train, have a good cup of coffee and people watch.

Can not believe it was free, to go to York Railway Station. Great for all ages and very interesting.
Load of trains to see and even a cafe to have a coffee and a slice of cake. Will, visit again, when in York, November 2013.

As with most provincial stations the facilities are adequate. We tried the steamed milk but I can't say it was anything extraordinary, however, my friend loved it.
