Welcome aboard the North Yorkshire Moors RailwayWith our magnificent steam engines, beautiful rural stations and smartly uniformed staff, a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is like taking a step back in time.

From the smoke and steam pouring from the engines to the cosy wood-panelled carriages and friendly conductor service, the railway is both lovingly preserved and charmingly authentic

It’s also the perfect starting point for a day out, whether you’re travelling between the rugged Yorkshire villages, hiking on the wind swept moors or spending a day by the seaside in Whitby.

Whitby is a great family day out, with its ancient abbey, stunning coastline, and deliciously fresh fish and chips. We’d recommend a trip to the Magpie Cafe, described by Rick Stein as ‘the best fish and chip shop in Britain’.

Or you might fancy a trip around the town on “Elizabeth” – the world’s only steam passenger bus in daily operation and sponsored by the railway.   Tours depart daily from the band stand by the pier.  Go to their web site by clicking here.

Goathland StationOur ‘celebrity’ station, Goathland is also known as Aidensfield in YTV’s Heartbeat and as the bewitching Hogsmeade in the first Harry Potter Film. Visit the charming village, just a few minutes walk from the station, or enjoy a cup of tea in our 1922 style tea room.
