South Tynedale Railway
Enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful South Tyne valley from Alston to Kirkhaugh or Lintley. Many of our trains are hauled by a vintage steam locomotive and some have a buffet car service too. The round trip will take about an hour and a half through lovely Pennine scenery. Catch sight of deer, look out for soaring birds of prey; you may even see a red squirrel. Leave the train for a walk on the South Tyne Trail. Bring a picnic or sample our cafe at Alston station where there is free parking and a gift shop just minutes from the town centre.
Adult £7.50, Child £3, Family (2adults and up to 3 children) £20
