With less than one month to go, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is counting down the days until its highly-anticipated 2022 season opening on Monday 4th April.
An ideal experience for a family day out or Easter break, tickets are now on sale for the end-to-end service, running between Pickering and Whitby with reserved seats for your entire journey, and start from £20.50 for children, £41 for adults or £84 for a family full line ticket.
This year, passengers can hop on board and experience 24 miles of glorious heritage railway, enjoying the breathtaking scenery of the North York Moors National Park, including Goathland railway station, known to millions as the filming location for the iconic Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and home to the popular TV series Heartbeat.
During your visit there are three unique tea rooms in beautiful locations across the railway to explore, the quaint North Yorkshire Moors Railway souvenir shop, Peter’s Railway Young Engineers Centre on Platform 2 at Pickering, the Goathland Station Shop which features popular Harry Potter gifts, and a host of railway memorabilia at the Grosmont Shed Shop. At Grosmont you can also visit the NYMR’s Motive Power Department where they restore and maintain the historic locomotives.
What’s more, as a dedicated charity, not only will you experience an enjoyable day out but every penny spent on tickets, tea, cake and memorabilia means you’ll be directly contributing to the running of the heritage railway. All proceeds from NYMR ticket sales, cafes and shops go back into necessary funding towards providing memorable experiences for visitors, fulfilment for volunteers and staff of the heritage railwayand to ensure all charitable aims are being delivered.
