Get your timing right and a steam train will be coming through. Either way you can feel the magic that made this the Hogsmead railway station. You'll find yourself looking for Hagrid and the road to Hoggwarts. Definitely worth a visit and if you're feeling flush take a steam train down to Pickering and back.

Passing through so after hearing this is where they had filmed"heartbeat" we stopped. Nice to see train station featured in Harry Potter & Aidensfield arms featured in heartbeat. Literally 6 shops all selling the same heartbeat memorabilia Very underwhelming. Spent approx an hour here and that was because the service in the coffee shop was so slow Nice to say... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds as if you enjoyed the NYMR station at Goathland but were not so impressed by Goathland village which is, of course, out of our hands. More

I Absolutely love this place, as soon as you get there you feel as though your in the 60s and I was born in the 90s. Even going to the train station you feel as though your on the platform going to hog warts, it's amazing. So real. Everyone has to visit here at least once in their lifetime. We... More

Located on the outskirts of the 'Heartbeat' village this small railway station is packed full of delights for the railway enthusiast - and pleasantly located, interestingly quaint and picturesque enough for the rest of us to enjoy too. Nestling in a little glen with a river and waterfalls this retro station (featured in the Harry Potter franchise) is well worth... More

Lovely station in the heart of the North York Moors. A popular stop on the NYM steam railway. Very well kept with a small shop and cafe.

A beautiful, quaint station on the North Yorkshire moors rail line. All Harry potter fans should visit at least once. A good place to catch a train and enjoy a beautiful part of Yorkshire.

We wandered down to the station to watch the santa special steam train come through during our weekend stay in Goathland. The station, although undergoing work on the platform, was very tidy and well kept. It was fantastic to watch the train pull in, full of little children and their families. It took us back to when our own were... More
