North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Details

Hop on board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and enjoy a day filled with vintage charm and amazing scenery on one of the world’s greatest heritage railways. Let our fleet of steam and heritage diesel trains transport you along 24 miles of Yorkshire countryside and back in time to experience a taste of a bygone era.
Arrive at our 1930s – style station in Pickering and explore the vibrant market town with its beautiful historic attractions. Pass through the 1912 themed Levisham station before heading off on a scenic walk; Skelton Tower is around a mile away and boasts amazing views of the valley. Request a stop at the tranquil Newton Dale Halt – not accessible by road, this is the ideal base for forest walks and spotting wildlife.
Be sure to visit our ‘celebrity station’ at Goathland – it served as the original Hogsmeade Station in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, as well as part of Aidensfield in 90s drama Heartbeat.
Spend a little time at the 1950s - esque Grosmont station and you may just catch a peak behind the scenes; this is the operating hub of the railway where the locomotives are stored and maintained. Ride to the end of the line and experience the seaside town of Whitby – with its folklore tales, bustling harbour and fish and chip dinners, it will compliment your day perfectly.
North Yorkshire Moors Railway is a not for profit organisation that is run and maintained by our dedicated network of volunteers, and every passenger that travels with us helps to contribute towards the preservation of one of the UK’s most historic railway lines.
With services running daily from 24 March until 4 November and special services throughout the year, it’s full steam ahead for fun! Visit www.nymr.co.uk to find out more.
