The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage railway experiences with thrills and education at its heart. Climb on-board a steam or heritage diesel train on one of the earliest and most historic lines. Experience 24 miles of Yorkshire’s amazing scenery at this must-see visitor attraction. We will take you on a journey you can’t even imagine! Explore the Railway • Pickering Station is a must-see 1930’s themed station that will transport you back in time to the locomotive steam era. • A must-see is the celebrity station, Goathland, which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film. • Explore Grosmont Station which is home to the operating and engineering world of the NYMR. If you are lucky you might be able to catch a sneaky peak at the work taking place on our engines! • Visit Whitby with its narrow streets and bustling harbour overlooked by the striking ruins of Whitby Abbey. • Explore Levisham Station which is surrounded by the North York Moors.

We went on a train ride with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway during our holiday. I initially thought the fares were quite pricey. However, when you realise how much it costs to run the railway it's not actually that bad. It is also run by...More

Perhaps our family experience was not helped by the fact that it rained non stop throughout the day. Each of us thought that £31.00 adult return to Whitby seemed expensive but we had committed to the venture. Before starting our train journey we had an...More
