North Yorkshire Moors Railway - Review

North Yorkshire Moors National Park is amazing by itself. Something that makes it more interesting is the fact that it has North Yorkshire Moors Railway running by it. North Yorkshire Moors Railway is a heritage railway located in North Yorkshire, England. It opened up in 1836 with the purpose of inland trade in those times. Back in the day, Whitby was a very important sea- port and hence George Stephenson was the man behind the planning of these railways. The initial name given to this railway was Whitby and Pickering Railway. After a short span of time that it was shut for, it re-opened in 1973 by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust Ltd. The preserved line has not only won a lot of accolades for its maintenance but is also one of the main tourist attractions of Whitby, England. While you are in Whitby or even near by, you should definitely make it a point to travel through the heritage railway that carries more passengers than any other heritage line in the United Kingdom and is the busiest steam heritage line in the world.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Whitby Reviews

  • Amazing day out for us and our 7 year old. We booked the 9:25am from Pickering. We booked online but still had to pick up tickets from the ticket office in the station. They had a line for pre-order pick up so it only took a minute. We drove from York and it took 45 minutes. Parking was easy in the on-site car park but it had filled up by 9am (there is overflow parking a bit further away). Parking was 5 pounds and the machine took coins and cards. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent support for elderly and disabled visitors. I visited on crutches and although the ground underfoot can be uneven as it is a heritage site the support I received from the staff was fantastic. They can't do enough for you. We visited because of the behind the scenes weekend. It was fascinating to see the engineering works in progress and of course the wonderful steam trains. Well worth a visit whatever your age or ability.

  • Great railway and well run. But very busy and sometimes hard to find a seat (rather like Great Anglia!) Get there early and be prepared to wait for the next train. Nice tea rooms too.

  • A great time and a good opportunity to get a taste of bygone days on the railway. The onboard staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to be enjoying what they were doing. Car parking is nearby with just a short walk to the station. Onboard catering is basic, so you might want to take your own food with you.

  • Great journey, helpful staff and very reasonably priced if you get a family ticket. Park at Pickering for a fiver and spend the day in Whitby. Saves you driving and coping with the traffic around Whitby. Highly recommended
