Description:

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage...

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.

Spent a very happy day on the NYMR with partner and three boys (10, 12 and 15). At first glance, tickets prices seem a bit expensive, but considering the length of the railway and the obvious investment and care (and that the ticket lets you travel up and down the line all day) it's actually very reasonable.

Have to say it's not the cheapest however it is worth the money!! Fantastic views and scenery, great steam engines and coaches, all run by volunteers who I cannot praise enough! After becoming ill at goathland station the volunteer staff there were great with me. Anyone coming to the area must have a go! I take my hat off to... More

Picturesque journey through the Yorkshire moors from Whitby to Pickering. We bought a "whole line" ticket which means you can get on and off at any station - cost £27 each so not cheap, but worth the money. We went all the way to Pickering, spent an hour there and then got the train back, getting off at Grosmont and... More

I have been meaning to come on the NYMR for years and have finally got here today. I wish I hadn't bothered. Firstly as well as each adult costing £27 from Pickering to Whitby you are also expected to pay £5 for parking your car! Secondly we chose 2 trains to take us straight through that were advertised as steam... More

My husband & I decided to have a day in Whitby last month (june). The weather wasn't too good on the day we arrived so, after a look around we decided to pay for 2 tickets on the north Yorkshire moors railway. We bought 2 adult return tickets to Grosmont for a total of £27. It took approx. 30mins to... More

We decided to take the kids on a steam train journey and chose Pickering to Whitby. Parking the car was not a great experience, the station car park was full (10am) so we followed the signs to the overspill. We were greeted by the attendant who held their hand out for a fiver and issued us with a hand written... More

We travelled from Pickering to Gothland and back with a comfortable stop at Gothland Station. We were fortunate north bound to be right behind the locomotive and could listen to the to the beat of the engine as it pulled up the inclines. Carriages very clean and well maintained and rail staff available at stops to look after passengers who... More

We expected a steam train but got diesel for most of our trip after paying £46 for two concessionary tickets I found very expensive and would use the bus to get to Whitby should we go again

I’m no great lover of steam trains. I know many people who do think that the huffing and puffing monsters are the finest thing since Stevenson designed his Rocket, but I’m not one of them. So, I wasn’t too excited when good friends suggested we should spend an evening on the North Yorks Moors Railway and have a meal on... More
