Education & Specialist Tours

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway has a fascinating history dating back to its construction in the 1870s as the first public narrow-gauge railway in England. Our museum brings the story to life with historic artefacts from tickets and uniforms to locomotives and coaches, as well as new interactive features. We can also offer guided group tours of the museum and Ravenglass site for schools or specialist groups encompassing the restored Furness Railway main-line signal box, engineering workshops and engine shed, and give a glimpse behind the scenes of the museum’s restoration areas. Tours are led by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and can be arranged for special interest or general audiences covering a general history of the railway or focus on a specific topic such as the 3ft gauge origins, mining and quarrying industries, the Bassett-Lowke locomotives, or life in Eskdale. We’re happy to tailor tours to meet group requirements, just ask us. Fare: extra £4.00 pp in addition to other booked tour fare. Must be booked in advance.
