Update 22nd December 2020
Following careful consideration of the current situation and travel advice from the Government, we have made the decision to temporarily close the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway with effect from 17:00 on Wednesday 23rd December. We will constantly monitor the situation and look to reopen as soon as conditions allow us to do so.
Thank you for your continued support.
Welcome to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. Join us as we journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the UNESCO World Heritage site, Lake District National Park. Travel across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:40 gradient at times, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station.
Please note that dogs are welcome to travel on the railway (small charge applies) and are also welcome in some of our buildings.
