North Yorkshire Moors RailwayCurrently Closed
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.

Absolutely brilliant to see..saw steam engine was 1940 weekend when I was there.. everyone was dressed up... staff were all in costume as well...had extra staff to deal with the amount of people that had turned out for 1940 weekend... staff helpful with history of the train station and trains...lots to offer... amazing to say that it's still going after all this time....even if you're not into trains it's worth a look just to see how amazing it is...
Best experience on a steam railway so far. Everyone is very helpful and kind. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. It is like a fairytale sometimes. It is just out of this world. We'll probably going to come back again soon. We'll recommended.
Great heritage railway with dedicated people working hard. Is a little pricey hence 4 stars. Could do with discount multidrop tickets perhaps. The area is good to get off and explore. Whitby at the coast end has some fantastic eating places
Beautiful journey through the moors. So much to see, small traditional stations along the route kept beautiful, Staff are pleasant and happy to chat if not to busy. Toilets not the cleanest but on a whole a lovely trip. Thoroughly enjoyed it
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.
