There’s no finer way to see the classic scenery of Yorkshire than being pulled along by a steam train with the smell of smoke and the sound of the whistle taking you back in time. This is exactly what the North Yorkshire Moors Railway offers and our return journey will be one to remember, with free time in the historic coastal town of Whitby. We also enjoy a steam train trip along the edge of the Yorkshire Dales as well as an incredible return journey along one of the last great mainline railways to be built in the country, the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which crosses a staggering mosaic of landscapes. So join us for railways galore from the dales to the moors, with a cheeky taste of creamy, crumbly Wensleydale cheese.

DAY 1: YORKSHIRE

Make your own way to our hotel, where you meet our Tour Manager and enjoy a relaxing evening.

DAY 2: HAWES - BOLTON ABBEY RAILWAY

This morning we have free time in the highest market town in England, Hawes, and the Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre where we enjoy a demonstration and a cheeky tasting. We then travel to Bolton Abbey for a return journey on the charming Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway.

DAY 3: SETTLE-CARLISLE RAILWAY

Today we enjoy a return journey on the Settle-Carlisle Railway so you can sit back and admire the scenery from both directions. This line pays testament to the ingenuity of 19th-century railway engineers as it travels over 72 miles through the North Pennines, Eden Valley and Yorkshire Dales, crossing 19 viaducts and passing through 14 tunnels. The Ribblehead viaduct is a particular highlight with 24 arches and a highest point of 32 metres.

DAY 4: NORTH YORKSHIRE MOORS RAILWAY

This morning we are taken by coach to the little market town of Pickering for a return journey on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, one of the world’s greatest heritage railways. The route takes us from Pickering to Whitby, passing through 24 miles of Yorkshire’s amazing scenery. We also have some free time to explore Whitby, which boasts some of the best fish and chips in the UK and has links to Captain Cook and Dracula!

DAY 5: HOME

After breakfast you are free to check out of our hotel and depart at leisure. You could take the opportunity to visit the city of York, home to the National Railway Museum which offers free entry and is home to thousands of objects from over 300 years of railway history.
