Leeds Station (Leeds (Yorkshire))

Leeds Station is the railway station serving the major English city of Leeds (Yorkshire) in Yorkshire.

It was originally known as Leeds City, and was designed by Thomas Prosser of Newcastle and opened in 1869, while the present station dates in part from 1937 and partly from the 1960s.

There was formerly another station named Leeds Central. This closed in 1967.

As befits a major city, a number of lines converge here.

One line comes from Hull, and arrives by way of Selby and Garforth, continuing to New Pudsey and Bradford Interchange.

Another line runs to Harrogate, Knaresborough and York.

A very scenic line goes to Keighley, Skipton and Carlisle, with a branch to Bradford Forster Square.

Another goes to Guiseley and Ilkley.

Yet another runs to Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Stalybridge and Manchester.

Other lines run to Wakefield and to Castleford.
