North York Moors Railway Child Friendly Attraction in Pickering, North Yorkshire, England


A nostalgic and enchanting steam or diesel-powered trip through the spectacular North Yorkshire countryside.

Carrying over 250,000 passengers per year, the North York Moors Railway - the second-longest preserved railway line in Britain - offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to cross the North York Moors in a heritage steam or diesel railway train, stopping at Pickering, Levisham, Goathland, Grosmont and Whitby; a historic and cultural journey through spectacular countryside. Especially popular are the Day Rover tickets which offer unlimited travel between any of the nymr stations for a whole day, allowing passengers to spend as much time as they like at each stop. The Pullman Diner service offers a traditional Yorkshire Sunday lunch in the Moorlander dining carriage, as well as a full five-course evening meal in one of three Pullman carriages for a meal with a difference.

The southernmost station at Pickering resides in a bustling and historic market town, with an ancient English Heritage castle and chapel offering family-friendly exhibitions and activities, as well as the popular Beck Isle Museum of Rural Life.

The nymr stop in the picturesque village of Levisham is a 1912-style station with abundant local walks, wildlife, and an exhibition inside a converted train wagon open at weekends.

Goathland village has a history extending back to Viking times and today contains several hotels and guest houses, and a village green populated by tame black-faced sheep. The village is recognisable as the fictional backgrop of Aidensfield in the popular Yorkshire TV police drama series Heartbeat, and fans of the programme will be able to revisit all their favourite landmarks in place.

Grosmont station is an immaculate 1950s railway junction where visitors can relax in the Station Tavern and see the current steam locomotives under restoration in the engine sheds. An extensive art and craft gift shop and a railway souvenirs shop are also available.

The North York Moors railway is an exciting, all-weather, family-friendly day out in a historic and exceptionally beautiful part of the country.
