The station was originally opened by the Hull and Selby Railway in 1840 and at one time had four tracks passing through. The course of the additional outer tracks (and the two disused platform faces) are still visible, although these were removed in the early 1970s.
There is a ticket office inside the main building which is manned each day from start of service until 19:45 (18:30 on Sundays) and there is a self-service ticket machine (card only) outside the door available 24 hours a day. There is also a vending machine and a refreshment stall open each morning. There is a waiting room on each platform and step-free access to both is available (to platform 2 via ramps onto the footbridge). Automated public address announcements and digital display screens were upgraded by TransPennine Express in 2017. Free Wi-Fi is also being introduced to the station.
There is a pay and display car park located north and south of the station, whilst Brough centre and bus services are a short walk from the station.
All services on the various routes out of Hull call at the station, giving it good links with many towns and cities in the rest of Yorkshire. There are also a number of through trains each day to and from London King's Cross, courtesy of Hull Trains (seven departures each day) and London North Eastern Railway. (one morning service outbound, returning in the evening).
Sunday sees an hourly service to Sheffield and every two hours to York & Manchester (with some extra trains in the afternoon). There are now also a few through trains to Scarborough all year since the December 2009 timetable change.
Northern has promised to introduce an additional hourly service between Leeds and Bridlington. Service frequency improvements will also be implemented on the York & Sheffield routes both on weekdays and on Sundays as part of the new franchise agreement.
