Beverley railway station serves the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Hull to Scarborough Line and is operated by Northern who provide most passenger services from the station.
History and description
The station was also planned to be the junction for the North Holderness Light Railway. This intended railway was given an Act in Parliament for 'transferring to the company the North Holderness Light Railway Company; and for other purposes, North Eastern Railway Bill [Lords].' The act was passed on 8 June 1899, but the NER never built the line.
The station has a staffed ticket office, which is open Mondays to Fridays from 07:00 until 17:00 and until 13:30 on Saturdays (closed Sundays). A ticket machine is also provided. There is a waiting room and cafe in the main building next to the ticket hall and a shelter on the opposite platform. Step-free access is available to both platforms, though the southbound one is reached via a manned barrier level crossing. Train running details are offered via digital display screens and timetable posters.
The station has a two trains per hour 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 (hourly all day) or Selby & York (one per day). Trains run hourly in each direction on Sundays, with most southbound trains running to Sheffield & two-hourly extensions northbound to Scarborough all year since the December 2009 timetable change (this service level previously only ran in summer).
