Beverley railway station serves the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Yorkshire Coast Line and is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. It was opened in October 1846 by the York and North Midland Railway and gained junction status nineteen years later when the North Eastern Railway opened its line to Market Weighton and York. This latter line fell victim to the Beeching Axe on 29 November 1965.
The station was also planned to be the junction for the North Holderness Light Railway, a branch line that was to run roughly north-eastwards to North Frodingham, with intermediate stops at Tickton, Routh, Long Riston, Leven, and Brandesburton. However, despite appearing on tiled maps of the North Eastern Railway's network at several of the company's stations, the branch was never constructed.
The station has a basic half-hourly service to Hull and Bridlington, with nine trains a day extended to Scarborough on weekdays. At peak times, a number of extra trains from Hull terminate/start here. Some services to Hull continue to Doncaster and Sheffield or York. Trains run hourly in each direction on Sundays, with two-hourly extensions northbound to Scarborough all year since the December 2009 timetable change (this service level previously only ran in summer).
