Yorkshire and the North of England

Yorkshire, or - as locals know it - 'God's own county', is steeped in history, culture and tradition. Romans, Vikings, Georgians and Victorians all left their mark on Yorkshire's great cities, and the county's market towns and coastal villages still stand proud, set in their ways and virtually unchanged by the 21st century. You can explore the best of this great county with Rail Discoveries - York, its beautiful Gothic cathedral, great shops and cafés, and National Railway Museum, the elegant Georgian Spa town of Harrogate, and Whitby, famous for its weather-beaten Abbey ruins.

From the untamed Yorkshire Moors to the rolling hills and valleys of Cumbria's Lake District, experience this county at its best from a heritage railway. And there are plenty of railways to choose from! Join our 'Yorkshire by Steam' tour and cross the gorgeous heathery North Yorkshire Moors, on the restored North Yorkshire Moors Railway. And venture into the wild Yorkshire Moors on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, travelling through scenic countryside immortalised by the Brontës.

On our escorted holiday 'Lakes and Dales by Steam Rail' take a steam-hauled journey on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway from scenic Eskdale to Ravenglass, the Lake District's only coastal village. You'll ride aboard the legendary Settle to Carlisle Railway - a route that crosses miles of unspoilt beauty and passes one of Yorkshire's most incredible sights - the Ribblehead Viaduct.
