Moors, Whitby & The Yorkshire Steam Railway Day Trip

Book Tickets

About this trip

Unfortunately, Covid-19 is preventing the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from operating their usual steam train timetable in 2020 so this tour is not available until April 2021, but places can be booked online now!

All our tours operate in accordance with the “WE’RE GOOD TO GO” COVID-19 Industry Standard.

Operating on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, this friendly, small-group Guided Day Trip from York provides the opportunity to explore the scenic and picturesque North York Moors National Park, enjoy more than two hours in the seaside town of Whitby and take a Steam Train ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway! You will also experience the traditional English moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Goathland (Heartbeat and Harry Potter filming location) and travel back to York through the Howardian Hills, passing by Castle Howard. In Whitby, you will be able to see Whitby Abbey (inspiration for the Dracula books), visit the Captain Cook Attractions, shop for some Whitby Jet or Gothic Fashion, sample Fish & Chips from the famous Magpie Café or just enjoy the bustling port and waterfront – the choice is yours!

Runs on MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS and SATURDAYS from April to October.

This trip can also be booked as a PRIVATE  TOUR just for your party (from York, Leeds or Harrogate), for groups of 1-4 passengers, up to 8 passengers or up to 16 passengers on any date. To book that option, visit the Private Tours Page.
