Estación del Norte

Transport connections and location

Estación del Norte is in an advantaged position because of its proximity to the city centre. This means that the station is extremely well integrated into the transport network, and it is very easy to reach.



Location and map

The station is enclosed by Calle de Xàtiva to the north (the street that passes in front of its entrance), Carrer d’Alacant to the east, and Carrer de Bailèn to the west.

Right behind Estación del Norte (800 m/0.5 miles south of it) is Estación Joaquín Sorolla, Valencia’s high speed train station. If you need to transfer between stations, there is a shuttle bus from Estación del Norte to Joaquín Sorolla.

Transport

As mentioned, the station is extremely well connected to all forms of transport.

This includes public transport, with the metro (lines 3, 5, 9), the tram (line 10), and EMT buses (more than 10 different day lines and 10 night lines).

If you prefer, you can also park and drive electric scooters all around the station or find the taxi rank just to the side of the building.

On foot

Given that Estación del Norte is in such a privileged position, it is normal that reaching it on foot is not difficult at all.

You’ll find the train station just south of Ciutat Vella, east of the Bullring and west of Chinatown. If you are in the Old Town, going on foot is certainly the easiest option.

Metro and trams

The closest stations are:

  • Xàtiva (view map), the metro stop right in front of the station.
  • Colón (view map), a metro stop northeast of the station*.*
  • Alacant (view map), the tram stop right between the train station and the Bullring.

Xàtiva is only 1 minute away from the Bullring, while Colón is 600 m away (7-minute walk, a little under 0.4 miles) from it. The same three lines (3, 5, 9) stop at both stations.

The tram network’s line 10 stop, Alacant, is to the side of the building.

For detailed information about how this system works, you can read our article about the metro and trams in Valencia.

Buses

The closest bus stop is probably the one called Estació del Nord, opposite the station. To reach it you’ll only need to cross to the other side of the street (1-minute-walk). The other bus stop is called Xàtiva. It is a little down the street, to the west, but still very close (140 m, about 0.2 miles).

You’ll find other stops all around the train station area, but these two are the ones with the most lines - both regular and night lines.

Here are the most important daytime lines.
