Wensleydale Railway

Wensleydale Railway: Take a historic journey by steam train and trains of yesteryear with the Wensleydale Railway, through 16 miles of stunning Yorkshire countryside to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Bolton Castle. Running between Leeming Bar [off the A1] and Redmire [for Bolton Castle], this breathtaking area inspired the artist Turner and was the setting for the TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small.’

Getting to the Wensleydale Railway couldn’t be easier. Leeming Bar is under a mile from the A1, north of Leeds and York or you can join the trains at Redmire, Leyburn or Bedale. There is also a half hourly bus service from Northallerton which takes just 14 minutes and is operated by ‘Dales and District.’ Press the stop button on the bus when you pass the town name sign for Leeming Bar and alight at the next stop. The station is on the right at the small roundabout, just three minutes by foot.  A Rover ticket giving freedom of the railway costs £18 for adults, £15.50 senior citizen, £1 child, except on special event days.  A range of single and return fares are also available between all locations.

It is wise to check for service updates here before travelling.

Why not let someone else do the driving and go by bus? 

Dales & District offer a fleet of service buses that operate throughout the Dales. There are few services on Sundays or in the evening, so it is wise to check your journey carefully before travelling.
