Settle to Carlisle Train Trip

We are coming to Carlisle in January and wonder if the train trip runs then - I only see a timetable up to December? Where would be the closest train station to walk part of Hadrians Wall please. Thanks for your help.

The trains run 364 days a year - it's a normal train service running from Leeds to Carlisle.

No part of the line is near Hadrian's Wall except for Carlisle itself.

The rail system (throughout Europe) changes timetable in June and December, which may be why you're only seeing a timetable as far as December. The service will continue, and I don't think any major changes in service planned for this route at this forthcoming timetable change. Daylight hours are short in December, so plan your timings carefully.

For Hadrian's wall, you'd need the Carlisle to Newcastle rail line. Haltwhistle or Bardon Mill station, but it's a couple of mile walk (in hilly terrain) from the railway to the wall.

Just looked up a random date in January and there is a service approximately hourly. Look on the national rail website and you should be able to find what you need to know.

There are steam specials over the Settle and Carlisle most weekends - sometimes more than one.

A lot more expensive than the normal train - and advance booking usually essential
