Step aboard the historic Hull to Scarborough railway line
with the Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership
Opened by the York and North Midland Railway company in 1846/47 the line has kept much of its original character and many of the stations are a joy to behold and especially of interest to the railway historian.
The line has lots to offer - from the thriving city and port of Hull to Victorian seaside resorts such as Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough. Along the way are pretty rural villages and thriving market towns as well as splendid views of the sea and countryside.
At around 55 miles long, the route has regular trains from Hull to Bridlington and about every third train up to Scarborough.
Trains are operated by Northern rail with connections at Scarborough to Leeds and York and at Hull to Leeds, York, Sheffield and London. Plusbus is available at Scarborough and Hull and the Yorkshire Coast Day Ranger ticket lets you extend your journey by bus from Scarborough to Whitby.
