North Yorkshire Moors Railway Tours

Welcome aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a historic rail line in North England. When it first opened in 1835 trains were originally horse drawn, except at a steep incline where they were hauled by rope. It wasn’t until 1845 that steam engines came into the picture.

When first created it served as a trade link, today it’s Britain’s most popular heritage steam railway carrying more than 300-thousand annual visitors along 18 miles of railway. In addition to rolling through impressive scenery in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, each station along the line takes passengers on a trip back in time depicting a year from 1912 to 1952.

But the “celebrity station’ is Goathland, maybe better known as Hogsmeade. The station was transformed into Hogsmeade station for the first Harry Potter film.

Practical Info

Steam trains run every day from the end of March through October. During the winter months, service is cut back typically to weekends in November, December, February and March and select days around winter holidays.
