Harrogate & District - Arrive by Train

The railway stations of Harrogate and Knaresborough both provide direct access to the town centres of these historic Yorkshire towns.
From anywhere in the country to the centre of town.

The ‘Harrogate Line’ between the nearby cities of York and Leeds enjoys regular connections to mainline services accessing Edinburgh and Waverley, Manchester, Durham and Newcastle.  As well as connecting services to London Kings Cross there are also daily direct services.

Trains to Harrogate and Knaresborough run regularly through the day and into the evening.

Both stations will deliver you directly to the town centres and are within easy walking distance of high quality accommodation and distinctive shopping.

Your ticket to great days out, and back again.

As well as a great way of arriving in Harrogate and Knaresborough, the rail link provides easy access to great days out in the metropolitan hub of Leeds and the walled city of York. 

For those spending a week in the Harrogate District it is worth knowing that both Leeds and York are tricky and time consuming to access by car.  So leave the roads behind and let the train take you right into the city centre, each just a little over half an hour from Harrogate Train Station.

A scenic line with stories to tell.

The Harrogate Line itself is a treat for rail enthusiasts and sightseers alike as it snakes its way through tunnels and over viaducts, taking in the beautiful rolling landscape on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in one direction, and crossing the serene and open countryside of the Vale of York in the other. 

The section of the line between Leeds and Harrogate holds some interesting landmarks, including the Crimple Valley Viaduct and the infamous Bramhope Tunnel where 24 navvies lost their lives during the arduous construction of the 2 miles of tunnel between 1845 and 1849. 

Both of these structures are now Grade II listed.
