Why take the train to Cross Gates?
The suburb of Cross Gates sits to the east of Leeds. Not only is the area popular with commuters who work in Leeds but also with those who live in York, as the area is well served by trains to both cities.
Before the railway came, Cross Gates was a small and quiet village. But as the industrialisation of Leeds increased demand for housing, the area began to attract more and more people.
As well as travelling home from work, locals also often take the train to Cross Gates to visit the Crossgates Shopping Centre or Manston Park.Buy tickets
