Burley Park railway station in Leeds, West Yorkshire is the first stop on the Harrogate Line, 2.25 miles (3.6 km) north west of Leeds railway station towards Harrogate and York. The station was opened on 28 November 1988 by British Rail.

Contents

The line is heavily used by commuters into Leeds. It is also near the Headingley Stadium for rugby and cricket fans when Headingley station is busy.

It is near to the districts of Burley, Hyde Park and the southern end of Headingley. The journey time to Headingley station is 2 minutes, and around 5 minutes to Leeds station, which is typically much faster than driving or taking the bus. This station is near to main bus routes on Cardigan Road, Burley Road and Kirkstall Road, and parking is limited to the surrounding streets.

The station occasionally plays the role of Hotten railway station in the TV series Emmerdale.

Facilities

The station is not staffed and there are no ticket machines available, so tickets should be purchased in advance or on the train. Northern do send revenue protection staff to the station to sell tickets at rush hours and when events are held at Headingley stadium. Shelters and digital information screens are located on each platform and both have step-free access from the street.

Services

There is a half-hourly daytime service towards Leeds (southbound) and Harrogate/Knaresborough northbound on Mondays to Saturdays (dropping to hourly in the evening). Alternate northbound trains continue through to York and additional services run at peak times on weekdays. On Sundays there is a half hourly service to Leeds and to Horsforth, with hourly extensions to Harrogate & York.

Due to the number of stops to York it is generally quicker to travel via Leeds when travelling to York, as an express service via Cross Gates and Garforth is then available.
