More about Esk Valley Railway

The Esk Valley Railway runs between the bustling city of Middlesbrough and the historic seaport of Whitby on a 90 minute journey covering 35 miles, stopping at 17 village stations along the line.

Taking a trip on the Esk Valley Railway is the ideal way to explore the North York Moors National Park, weaving through picturesque countryside and stopping at quaint little villages including Grosmont, where you can hop on a steam train or take a short walk to the engine sheds and see maintenance work being carried out on the steam engines, and view the pretty village of Danby which is home to The Moors National Park Centre.

Perfect for cyclists and walkers The Esk Valley Railway links to many of the cycling and walking routes in the area including The Cleveland Way, the Esk Valley Walk and the Whitby to Danby Cycling Route.

A journey on this spectacular stretch of railway really is a ‘must’ for all holiday-makers and tourists alike.

Trains are operated by NORTHERN who work together with the Esk Valley Railway Community Rail Partnership and have recently introduced an early morning and later evening service to improve links with the rest of the country.
