At the North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Come on board and bring joy to the whole family by taking a trip on the 24 miles of heritage railway at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR). Launched with families in mind and new for 2023, Kids Go Free, which means children aged 15 and below travel free at all times.

There’s also the new Unlimited Annual Pass for £45, meaning families can jump on board as many times within the year, on standard timetables services only. Single-use, shorter journeys tickets can also be purchased for 1 station for £12.00 per adult (16+) and to travel to 2 stations along the line £22.50 per adult (16+).

With stunning scenery and rich cultural heritage, it’s no wonder the NYMR is Britain’s most popular heritage railway and is one of the best visitor attractions in the North East. What’s more, the NYMR is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year with even more to see, do and commemorate at the iconic attraction.

Visitors can sit in the comfort of the period carriages and take in the sights and sounds of this popular living museum, watching the North York Moors National Park pass them by. The railway is brought to life by volunteers who are happy to share stories to spread the excitement, knowledge, and smiles.

During a visit to the heritage railway, visitors will get the opportunity to explore the heritage stations and engine sheds to see how the engineers maintain and conserve the locomotives and can treat themselves to a tasty treat at one of the tea rooms at Pickering, Goathland, or Grosmont. When stopping at Goathland station, it may be recognised as the filming location for the iconic Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The NYMR has also recently been used as a location for the latest films in the Mission: Impossible and Indiana Jones franchises.
