Plan your trip
Take the train from Manchester Piccadilly to Hull. Trains are frequent (look up times) and take approximately 1 hour 54 minutes.
Places to explore along the Yorkshire Wolds Coast Line include:
Kingston upon Hull is a thriving city and port which has retained much of its maritime history in seven museums, along with the new and exciting attraction The Deep, a must for all visitors. The city is famous for its theatres and has a tremendously strong local cultural scene, including the annual sea shanty festival.
The station – the award-winning Hull Paragon Interchange – is a magnificent building, many of the listed station features date back to the 1840s and the impressive overall five barrelled roof, which was extended by the North Eastern Railway in 1904. This is an excellent starting point for your journey up the coast.
Filey is yet another fine station with a nicely restored Y&NMR roof and a cafe. It is just a short walk to the town centre and the well-preserved seafront. Why not walk from here to Scarborough – it’s one of the best coastal walks you’ll find! If you stay on the train you’ll come into Seamer, where it joins the York line. From there it’s a short run to Scarborough with its vast range of attractions. These include boat trips, cliff railways, a superb park (with miniature railway!), the castle and lots more. Scarborough station itself still retains many of its original features and has the longest station seat in the country.
