Visit Tickets & Timetable Freedom Tickets Pickering & Whitby Return Services15 May - 20 June 2021* We are very pleased to be welcoming you back on board our trains. As the roll-out of the Government restrictions continue to ease we plan to operate our heritage services from 15 May. Freedom Tickets Buy a Freedom Ticket and experience the whole length of our line or hop off at a station along the way if you donate your ticket and add an additional 10% donation, we can benefit from Gift Aid and claim tax back on what you pay. If you hop off forgo the remaining outbound stations, but safe in the knowledge of a booked seat on the scheduled return service. Freedom Ticket journey time in each direction is a total of approx. 1h 50m. If you choose to disembark at any intermediate station, due to the current timetable and Covid-19 constraints, you will not be able to travel to Whitby and must return to Pickering on the returning leg of your outbound journey. Freedom Ticket Fares Off Peak Dates: 15-28 May and 8-20 June. Peak Dates: 29 May - 3 June. Closed: 4-7 June. A small donation makes a big difference The extra you pay when choosing a Donation Ticket contributes towards the continued preservation of one of the world’s greatest heritage railways. You are helping us to provide a high quality, safe and authentic evocation of the steam age for all to enjoy. If you give a donation, are a UK Taxpayer and complete a Gift Aid declaration, we can claim 25% tax back from the Government at no cost to you. Enjoy travelling the full 24 miles behind a heritage steam locomotive. This means we receive an extra 25p for every £1 you spend at no extra cost to you. If you do not wish, or are unable to Gift Aid, you would pay the Freedom Ticket price.
