Howden railway station serves the town of Howden in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of the town in the hamlet of North Howden. The station is managed by Northern Rail, but is also served by First TransPennine Express and First Hull Trains.
The station was originally opened by the Hull and Selby Railway on 1 July 1840 as Howden and Bubwith. It was renamed to Howden on 16 April 1869, and to North Howden on 1 July 1922. It was again renamed to Howden on 12 June 1961. In 1987 it was given Grade II listed building status by English Heritage.
The station has a somewhat irregular service frequency during the week, with gaps of anything from ten minutes to several hours depending on the time of day. All westbound trains call at Selby and then continue to either York or London Kings Cross. There is also a limited service to Leeds & Manchester Piccadilly (a.m peak only). Eastbound there are sixteen daily departures to Hull provided by the various operators that call there. On Sundays, five services are provided by First Hull Trains and eight services are provided by Northern Rail in each direction at various points throughout the day.
