Ripon railway station was a railway station that served Ripon, North Yorkshire, England.

History[edit]

Opened by the Leeds and Thirsk Railway on 1 June 1848, it was taken over by the North Eastern Railway, which became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board.
