Hayburn Wyke railway station was a railway station on the Scarborough & Whitby Railway 7 miles from Scarborough. It opened on 16 July 1885, and served the popular local beauty spot of Hayburn Wyke, and the Hayburn Wyke Hotel.

It was rebuilt in 1900, and closed temporarily on 1 March 1917. Reopening took place on 2 May 1921 before final, permanent closure on 8 March 1965. From 1955 the station was reduced to an unstaffed halt.
