Magic of the North York Moors Railway

North York Moors National Park

The experience

Step back in time and take a train ride on the North York Moors Railway, a heritage steam railway linking the moors to the sea. Travel from Goathland (used as Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter films) to Grosmont. Go behind the scenes in an engine repair shed or explore a working signal box. Appreciate the stunning views of the National Park landscape and enjoy a walk to one of England’s smallest, quirkiest pubs, to sample a local drink.
