Just 13 miles from Hardwick House is the incredibly romantic and nostalgic steam railway; made famous in a handful of movies with settings along the track providing the backdrop for Harry Potter, Heartbeat and the like.
Commencing from Pickering is perfect; you can park up, have a wander, take tea, breakfast or lunch and then make your way to the station. The architecture, sights and smells will transport you into childhood as you wait to board the classic railway.
You will begin to anticipate the thrill of the steam and amazing views and sights along the way from Pickering to Grosmont and beyond to gothic Whitby. The train journey will whisk you through the depths of North York Moors National Park and you will enjoy stops along the way at picturesque Levisham, Newton Dale Halt and Goathland.
True romantics will enjoy the Pulman Diner experience and booking is highly recommended – there’s a choice of three service levels all backed up by a top quality catering team for your delight and enjoyment – only in Yorkshire!
