York’s new railway station

This was the present station, designed by the North Eastern Railway architects Thomas Prosser and William Peachey, which opened in 1877.

It had 13 platforms and was at that time the largest station in the world.

As part of the new station project, the Royal Station Hotel, now called The Royal York Hotel, designed by Peachey, opened in 1878.

In 1909 new platforms were added, and in 1938 the current footbridge was built and the station resignalled.
