It has been a very tough year for everyone, and it is with a heavy heart that we announce the temporary closure of Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.
Following careful consideration of the current situation and travel advice from the Government, we have made the decision to temporarily close 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 in the New Year.
The health and well-being of our visitors, colleagues, local communities and suppliers are of utmost importance to us. We understand that this will be a huge disappointment to our customers, but ultimately, we all want to protect the health and safety of everyone who travels with us and the wider community. Although it has been a tough decision for us to make, we believe that this is the most responsible route to take.
Those customers who had tickets booked between 26th Dec - 3rd Jan have been contacted directly and refunds will be processed.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers a merry and safe Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you on board in the future.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
