Headingley railway station (formerly known as Headingley and Kirkstall railway station until some point early in the 20th century) is off Kirkstall Lane in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England on the Harrogate Line 3 miles (5 km) north west of Leeds. The station was opened in 1849 by the Leeds & Thirsk Railway, later part of the Leeds Northern Railway to Northallerton.
The station is halfway between Headingley centre and Kirkstall, just down the road from the Headingley Stadium's rugby and cricket grounds. It is over half a mile from the centre of Headingley itself, but close to good local bus routes on Kirkstall Hill, Kirkstall Road and Kirkstall Lane. It is also close to local shops and services in Kirkstall, including Kirkstall Leisure Centre.
Monday to Saturday daytimes, is generally a half-hourly service from Headingley southbound to Leeds and a half-hourly service northbound to Knaresborough with one train per hour onwards to York. In peak hours, there are extra services to and from Leeds.
Evenings and Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction.
