Goathland is a small village in the North Yorkshire Moors. It is 500 feet above sea level and its history goes back to the Viking times when it was known as Godelandia. The pretty village seems to have been set up to shoot a film...More

When I stepped off the train it felt like I had stepped onto a film set. Hogsmede and Aidensfield came to life.

Lovely volunteers; Sean was wonderfully informative, spanning goathland to long bridge . Looking forward to union of South Africa launch in April; hoping you get your lottery bid for bridge.

Just popped in for a quick look around. It's very old world. There was a coal fire burning in the small ticket office come waiting room. The man on duty was very helpful. Everything was very 1950/60.

Very nice trip, great train ride and trail. But the station talk with the volunteer station master was very long and didn’t answer any questions raised

We hadn't planned on a visit here but as we were driving through Goathland, we saw many people armed with expensive looking cameras walking down to the station so we decided to park and join them! It was a steam train day...all very nostalgic and...More

Thank you for your review, we're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Goathland Station. Obviously the people standing on the footbridge weren't old enough to remember that that's not a good place to stand when a steam train comes in.

The station really nice as a really nice cafe and small shop, Just needs the toilets cleaning as the gents really smell.

You will all get onto the station easily and there is a coach and car park nearby. I don’t know about the cafe booking

Hi Can you let me know if I can book a short steam train journey from Goathland to Whitby Bay? If so, how much will it cost and can we get a return ticket? It's for a special occasion for my mum who has never been to Whitby bay before or on a steam train so I thought for a fantastic day out, we could spend a short amount of time of steam train to Whitby bay and then spend most of our day at Whitby bay, then at around 5pm get the steam train back from Whitby bay to Goathland train station where we can collect our car and drive home back to Manchester. We want to experience the steam train but not spend the majority of our day on it because the main highlight for mum will be spent at Whitby bay and we only have 1 day to do this which is Sat 2 June mum's birthday. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks Scott

What a lovely idea. Check out the North Yorkshire Moors Railway website for timetable, fares and pre-booking. I think you will be able to get a train from Goathland and return later for about £20 return pp. Be aware that the... More
