Seamer station was opened on 7 July 1845 by the York and North Midland Railway and became a junction station when a branch line to Filey was opened the following year (5 October 1846). Its island platform configuration was chosen to make it easier for passengers to change between the two routes here rather than continuing into Scarborough to do so. A second branch line from the station (the Forge Valley Line to Pickering) was opened by the NER on 1 May 1882, but this closed to passengers on 5 June 1950 and was lifted soon after.
The station currently only has basic facilities, such as a large shelter on the island platforms, as well as CIS systems towards the middle of the platforms.
