"Steam train in the Lakes" Lake District National Park Transportation Tip by Britannia2
Lake District National Park Transportation: 24 reviews and 32 photos
The Lake District has a mainline steam railway that runs between Haverthwaite and Lakeside at the southern end of Lake Windermere.
The line is not very long but it is quite a scenic ride through pleasant countryside behind a steam engine pulling 1950s style coaches.
The station at Haverthwaite is worth a visit even if you are not travelling on the train just to sample it cafe. The homemade pies and pastries are very good and the old railway tearoom is authentically recreated ( and there are no 3 day old pork pies!).
You can buy an inclusive ticket for the train and lake steamer and transfer from the train at Lakeside to the waiting boat to travel on to Bowness and Ambleside.
