The Settle & Carlisle Statesman at The Fellsman
This very special tour on board the celebrated “Statesman” train includes a unique return journey over the entire majestic route of the Settle to Carlisle railway in all its spring glory, with great limestone peaks and deep valleys we travel over no fewer than 19 viaducts and through 12 tunnels on this masterpiece of Victorian engineering including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. And to make your day even more memorable there will be a sightseeing break in Carlisle. Leaving behind the industrial architecture of the north our train heads into the Yorkshire Dales for a spectacular journey over the magnificent high Pennines. The sheer scale of the scenery is apparent as we pass such famous landmarks as Ribblehead Viaduct, Wild Boar Fell and Mallerstang, with stunning views of the three peaks. One magnificent sight follows another before we gradually descend into the tranquil Eden Valley and the pretty Westmorland market town of Appleby, then on to the border city of Carlisle for an afternoon break. Departing from Carlisle we return homeward, again, on the stunningly spectacular Settle route as the setting sun casts a golden glow over the Cumbrian Mountains.
