The North Yorkshire Moors Railway offers a unique and educational environment, providing an interactive fun day out. That’s why this Easter we are inviting teaching staff to visit us for FREE to get to know us a little better and experience one of the world’s greatest railway experiences.

The North Yorkshire Moor Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage railway experiences with education at its heart. Climb on board a steam or heritage diesel train and experience 24 miles of Yorkshire’s amazing scenery at this must-see visitor attraction. 

Explore the Railway

  • Pickering Station is a must-see 1930’s themed station that will transport you back in time to the steam era.
  • A must-see is the celebrity station, Goathland, which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film.
  • Discover the North York Moors National Park and visit Levisham Station. Visit the Lamp Room on the station and the exhibition in the Box Van.
  • 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.
