Enjoy a magical ride across the English countryside

Whitby, North Yorkshire

With your day ticket in hand, hop on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and discover some of the best villages in UK between Pickering and Whitby.

Sit back and relax on a luxurious steam train and travel along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway through verdant moorlands that stretch to the coastline. Departing from the market town of Pickering with private compartments and big comfy seats, you’ll be whisked away to a time gone by. If you'd like to enjoy a five-star meal on your trip, book a lunch on the NYMR Pullman dining train, complete with silver service and cuisine made from locally produced ingredients. 

With five idyllic villages along the route – Levisham, Newtondale Halt, Goathland, Grosmont and terminating in Whitby – a day ticket will allow you to hop on and off all day long. Each village has walks, country pubs and plenty of things to do, including Goathland or ‘Heartbeat Country’ - the setting for ITV’s popular period drama series, Heartbeat. In Whitby you can enjoy fish and chips fresh from the North Sea and finally return to Pickering as the sun sets across the hills.
