We have announced our Summer Family tickets for £88 (two adults and two children), with individual adult tickets for £43 each and children aged between 4 & 15 travelling for just £1 when you buy our Family Ticket (up to three children per two full fare-paying adults). Tickets are now on sale and are available to purchase online.

This summer, hop on board the Seaside Special from Pickering to Whitby at the heritage railway, with services departing from 9.20am and 12.00pm from Monday to Saturday*. Enjoy a return journey hauled by heritage steam and diesel trains with reserved seats, 24 miles of spectacular views through the North York Moors National Park - arriving at the seaside in Whitby in an hour and 50 minutes for a family day out.

The service means you can enjoy a five-hour day trip to the popular seaside town.

If it’s a shorter journey you’re after, then try the Moors Explorer** which stops to explore the charming village stations of Goathland - a popular filming location - or Grosmont, where the NYMR engine sheds are based.

During your summer day out, be sure to visit one of the station tea rooms and enjoy breakfast or light bites that can be taken onboard the train, or head for the station shops for everything from local food and drink to a range of homeware, toys, books and more.

What’s more, as a charity and accredited museum, all the income from your visit, including ticket sales, catering and retail, goes towards helping ensure that the NYMR keeps steaming on into the future. 

*Please visit the Seaside Special page for journey times on a Sunday.

**Please note the Moors Explorer is not seat allocated. Some services are NOT available on Thursdays & Saturdays all year and Fridays in September & October. See timetable for details.
