Line Guide – Pickering to Whitby
The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is the country’s most popular heritage railway. The 18-mile line runs through the beautiful North York Moors National Park, between the market town of Pickering and the village of Grosmont.
Whitby is a great family day out, with its ancient abbey, stunning coastline, and deliciously fresh fish and chips. We recommend a trip to the Quayside winner of the UK’s Fish and Chip Shop of the year 2014. If you are travelling on a Friday from Pickering to Whitby and back why not pre-book Quayside award winning fish, chips & mushy peas for collection on your return journey. More information and how to book on the Quayside Express.
