Victorian Railway Stations

About this book
£9.99
Maximum quantity available reached.

This book, with full colour illustrations and extensive photography throughout, takes you on a tour of Britain’s iconic Victorian railway stations.

Along the way, you’ll explore everything from the palatial terminus to the humble halt, and meet the notable architects employed to create these buildings.

Victorian railway stations reflected the importance of what was a revolutionary mode of transport for Britain. They were statements of the pride felt in them by their railway company owners, and many were specifically designed to out-do rival companies for grandeur, scale and comfort.

The great iron roads transformed both rural and urban landscapes, as well as fundamentally changing social and commercial life for all sections of the population.

Many of us still use these stations today – some of us pass through them on a daily basis. Trevor Yorke’s richly illustrated and meticulously researched book pays tribute to this fascinating architectural heritage left to us by the Victorians.

The book also contains a list of recommended stations to visit throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
