Welcome from the Friends of Hunmanby Railway Station
Hunmanby is a lively, attractive village, two miles from the North Sea Coast, and a gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds. It is a historic village with a Heritage Trail and Flower Trail. It you fancy going further afield, it is perfectly placed for exploring the coast and the countryside.
Discover Yorkshire Coast have created a special webpage about Hunmanby with input from the village community, including photographs taken by local people to help promote the village as an attractive destination 'betwixt Wolds and Coast'

The Station: This is an unmanned, but travellers can find a ticket machine and plenty of information there, CCTV covers the station with public address announcements for each train service. The rail industry produces a very useful Onward Travel Map, showing the station in relation to the village and its facilities, available here:
Free leaflets, with useful maps inside, are available from the leaflet racks at the station entrance (Scarborough Platform.)
Hunmanby in Bloom produce the Flower Trail leaflet, showing the village green spaces maintained by volunteers and Hunmanby Parish Council
Hunmanby History Group, produce the Heritage Trail leaflet.
There are now 'real time' information displays in the new waiting shelters at Hunmanby station. They show if a train is on time, if there is a delay and a reason for this and the number of coaches the train service is formed of.
There is a live feed from Northern Railway to show trains due to call at Hunmanby in the next hour:
Engineering work takes place on the local railway line when passenger trains are not running. Recently, old railway track dating from the 1940's was replaced between Speeton and Bempton. This now provides a much smoother rail for passengers on the new continuously welded rails that the Turbo Star trains run on.
Network Rail and their contractors work year round to keep the network safe. This link to Network Rail about Snow and Ice explains the efforts put in 24 hours a day, in all weather to ensure a safe public transport network. The picture of the two engines with snowploughs was taken a Hunmanby Railway Station on 20th December 2010 after a heavy snow fall on the Yorkshire Wolds Coast Railway Line

Hunmanby is a working village of about three thousand people and has a thriving Industrial Estate. It also has holiday accommodation to suit most tastes: self-catering, traditional bed & breakfast, and more quirky and unusual places like the converted Old Station Waiting Rooms, The Folly and Posh Pods, and at Dale Farm, on the Bartindale Road. Though the shops and most amenities are about a 10-minute walk from the station, most of the visitor accommodation is much closer. Ideal for a short break without the car! The village has good facilities: a popular village school, two churches, a community centre, doctor’s surgery, dentist, optician, chemist, and Post Office. Village shops include the Co-op, Deli, greengrocers, butcher’s, Ellison's Hardware Store, cafes, newsagent, hairdressers and beauty parlours. There are four public houses: The White Swan and The Cottage in the village centre, The Horseshoe Inn on Stonegate, and the Piebald (Former Railway Tavern) on Sands Lane. All offer home cooked food and a choice of real ales. In addition, the Hunmanby Playing Fields Association on Sands Lane has a club house open to the public and Wrangham House Hotel. We hope you’ll come to see our village and enjoy it as much as we do.
