26, 27 & 28 May 2018

Join us this Spring Bank Holiday (26, 27 & 28 May) and travel along the heritage line and enjoy the North York Moors National Park scenery and wildlife! During this Bank Holiday journey to Levisham Station and experience the Levisham Animal Roadshow! 

Get up close and personal with Donkeys, Alpacas, Lambs, Guinea Pigs and more...Learn more about each individual breed, what they eat and how they are cared for on a daily basis. 

Meet a Horsfield Tortoise and see how they feel different to other animals, as well as the cheeky star attractions the Pygmy Goats.


Remember all our day return tickets are 'hop-on', 'hop-off' which gives you the chance to explore all our stations along the line for a great family day out:-

  • Pickering Station is a must-see 1930’s themed station that will transport you back in time to the steam era.
  • Let off Steam at Levisham and explore the heart of the North York Moors National Park! 
  • A must-see is the celebrity station, Goathland, which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film.
  • Explore Grosmont Station which is home to the operating and engineering world of the NYMR. If you are lucky you might be able to catch a sneaky peak at the work taking place on our engines!
  • Visit Whitby with its narrow streets and bustling harbour overlooked by the striking ruins of Whitby Abbey.

Ian's Mobile Farm will be in the Paddock at Levisham Station and will be available to see from 10:00 to 15:00 on 26, 27 & 28 May.

Farm Staff will provide everything needed for the visit including gazebos for shelter for the animals and DEFRA approved hand foam sanitiser for use after touching animals.
