Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway offers an exciting day out for the whole family!
Read on to discover everything that you need to know about our excellent on-site facilities to help you plan your steam railway day out. From timetable and event information, to booking tickets and premium carriage experiences, we are here to help you get the most out of your visit.
As part of your fare you can enjoy a few extras on us. There are children's outdoor play areas at both main stations, access to a variety of walking routes to suit all ages, and steam train photo opportunities along the line from the coast to the mountains. You can spot and snap passing engines and wildlife too. And, no visit is complete without a visit to the Ravenglass Railway Museum ( free entry, donations welcome) to find out more about 'our story'. There's no charge for making priceless 'great memories'! Don't forget to bring a refillable cup and save 25p off a hot drink in one of our cafés.
We recommend that customers pre-book tickets before visiting us as we have limited tickets available on the day. This will also allow you to choose your carriage and seat. Please call us to pre-book bikes and wheelchairs onto the trains as we have limited space available.
Is the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway dog-friendly?
We pride ourselves on being a dog-friendly Lake District tourist attraction. Dogs are welcome to travel on trains (except in Pullman Observation Carriage 'Joan' and Director Saloon 'Ruth', and at selected events). They are also welcome in some inside areas. A small charge applies for a dog ticket to travel. Assistance dogs are permitted throughout.
We look forward to welcoming your four-legged friends aboard our beloved railway.
