We are open!
*Please note* We are undertaking some major repair works on our Camping Coaches in the car park. The next 2 weeks (14th - 25th Sept) the works are expected to be quite loud and messy. Working days will be from approx 7:30 - 18:00, we apologise in advance for any disruption to your day out.
We are so glad to be back! View our updates below to find out all about the 'new normal' that you can expect to see when you visit us. We look forward to welcoming you back. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are now available below. 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.
Plan your day out with us here. View our daily timetable for all train departures from Ravenglass and Dalegarth stations, find out all about our fares and book your tickets. We also accept dogs, bicycles and wheelchairs on our trains.
Please note a single journey on the line takes approximately 40 minutes.
