Steam Train Adventures across the North York Moors to Whitby
Hot on the heels of our trip earlier this week to the National Railway Museum in York, we thought we use our increasingly useful ‘York Pass’ to take a nostalgic steam train ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. A stunning steam train journey from Pickering towards the picturesque Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby
Hurtling past stations on the 1hr 45min journey from Pickering to Whitby, you’re met by stations with evocative names like Grosmont, Levisham or the scene of the original Hogsmeade station in Harry Potter’s films at Goathland. (If you love Harry Potter, have you visited Alnwick Castle or the Harry Potter Experience in London – both are well worth the entrance fee!!)
Treasure Trails, a great way to discover Whitby
Containing some 17 clues, this fun and informative Treasure Trails puzzle kept both girls engaged on our lengthy walk across Whitby… The walk will easily pass the 10,000 steps as you head off in search of clues to solve the eventual location of a missing spell book that will help you ‘ward off the vampires’
All that walking from the West Cliff to the Abbey offers a great opportunity to catch glimpses of the seaside location of Whitby…. from it’s bustling harbour to the fantastic view up the Yorkshire Coast.
