"North Yorkshire Moors Railway" North Yorkshire by Marpessa
North Yorkshire Travel Guide: 3,308 reviews and 8,379 photos
Besides wanting to see the city of York, I also came to North Yorkshire to go on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. I could say that I wanted to come to the NYMR because of the history and beauty of the land (in a Wuthering Heights kind of way). But to be perfectly honest I'm a Harry Potter fan and wanted to go to Hogsmeade Station. I spent a day trippping up and down the railway - a perfect day for it too!
I have created three travelogues at the bottom of this page: Goathland, Grosmont and Pickering - all towns/stations on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Mostly they are pictures with a few short paragraphs - as I only spent a day on the NYMR I thought it was pointless to set up separate pages for each of them - especially when I really only have a couple of tips for all three places combined.
Nevertheless, I hope you like the photos and enjoy reading the travelogues!
(Note: the picture to the left is of Pickering station as seen in the movie Possession with Gwyneth Paltrow and Aaron Eckhart.)
Definitely go on this railway line. It is beautiful. But don't just stay on the train - get off and explore the region... more travel advice
