Everyone was so friendly. The is lots to do at the Scarborough end and my four year old daughter loved the water chute there. At the Scalby end there is the Sea life centre which has the ULTIMATE crazy golf. I know that because it said so on a sign outside. We didn't actually go in. We walked around the... More

Enjoyable little train journey. Takes you to Sea Life which is good. Just not ideal on a cold day like it was the day I went.

Enjoyed our trip on the NBR today. Great trains and friendly staff. Love the way they keep improving and upgrading it every year. Also had a couple of goes on the Water Chute which my son and I love.

This is an ideal way to get to and from the Sealife Center from Peasholme Park there is a charge but it isn't too expensive and is worth the money.

This is a sweet little train on a narrow-gauge track. The staff were friendly. A must for your children.

It took about 5mins and cost £3.30 return, well worth it if like us had done a lot of walking. At the North Bay we walked down onto the Beach Hut area and sat outside the café in the sunshine. The train drivers and guards were lovely, waving and speaking to the children on the trains.

not a lot to say about this train, nice friendy staff, but to say were disapointed is an under statement, nothing much to do at the other end, the Scalby Arms need a good face lift and change of bar staff would not go there again, all good fun for children on the train, but not really for us sorry.

Sorry that your "Let Down" with what is at the Scalby Mills end of the track. It is a shame there is not much at Scalby Mills but the Sealife Center is well worth a visit. We have invested over £500,000 in the last few years restoring the railway and adding attractions to the Peasholm end of the track. More
