Take a Ride behind one of our vintage steam locomotives for a special journey back in time.
Breathe in the evocative smells of a real steam railway, while your eyes and ears thrill to the puffing and hissing of the steam engine. Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and enjoy a unique view of some of Yorkshire’s finest countryside … or hop off at Holywell Halt and just watch the trains go by!
For something a little extra special, try riding in our First Class saloons, or combine your trip with a Cream Tea, Afternoon Tea, Ploughman’s Lunch or Cooked Breakfast served on as you steam through the Yorkshire Dales. During the summer & autumn we also offer Evening Eats on our Dales Dining steam train: Wine & Cheese Tasting, Fish & Chip Specials and our famous Curry Express!
Explore over 300 years of railway history, find out what it takes to be an engineer, and experience the thrill of steam first hand. Spark your little ones’ imaginations with our family-friendly science shows and storytelling, or let off steam in our indoor play area.
Delve even deeper with our Treasure Hunters app—explore the museum and investigate the amazing objects in our collection as you compete with your family and score points by taking photos.
