Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway
Welcome to Lakeland's oldest, longest and most scenic railway!
Join us as we journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:55 gradient at times, en route to our final destination, Dalegarth-for-Boot Station. The journey itself was one of Wainwright's favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England's highest mountains, the Scafell Range!
There are lots of things to do at the Railway, including shopping facilities, a museum to explore, adventure playgrounds to conquer, places to eat and drink and plenty of trails and walks to discover in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park - there really is something for everyone!
Opening times vary according to season and all our facilities are open whenever we are running trains. See our timetable for details of all our trains running during 2012. This is the just the start of your adventure right here!
