Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway: Ride All Day Ticket
From US$19.64
Overview
Enjoy a day on the railways and discover centuries of engineering heritage with this full-day Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway ticket. Hop aboard your train in Ravenglass and take a seat to begin your rail adventure. As you chug through the English countryside, enjoy panoramic views over the Lake District’s ancient woodland and rolling hillsides. Gaze over soaring peaks such as the Scafells, and perhaps hop out at any of the seven stops to explore further on foot. Afterward, visit the museum at Ravenglass to learn of England’s rich railway history. 
What to Expect
Originally built in 1875 to serve the mines of Eskdale, today, the railway provides a unique opportunity to take a step back in time. Travel the full seven miles of history between the once important Roman harbour of Ravenglass, The Lake Districts only coastal village at Ravenglass, and Dalegarth for Boot Station in the heart of the National Park. There are seven intermediate stops en route and the journey passes through ancient woodlands and mountain scenery including a view of England’s highest mountains, the Scafells ( 3,209ft). Take the opportunity to connect to the many walking routes and places of interest along the way, admire the estuary and mountain views on your journey and keep an eye out for some of England’s rarest wildlife including red squirrels.

Excellent accessible facilities at both main station include licensed cafes, children’s play areas and free wi-fi, heritage steam and diesel engines pulling a choice of open and closed carriages, visit the free Museum and find out about our heritage at Ravenglass or visit the ancient St Catherines Church and Englands oldest Watermill whilst at Dalegarth for Boot. There are many walks and trails to suit all abilities linking intermediate and main station stops including Roman Bathhouse at Ravenglass (0.5 miles), Muncaster Fell (5 miles), Eskdale Cycleway (7 miles), Irton Fell (4.5 miles), Blea Tarn 2 miles), Giggle Alley Japanese Garden (1.5 miles), Stanley Ghyll Waterfall 2.5 miles) and Hardknott Pass (7 miles).

Wonder back in history

A memorable and enjoyable trip although the scenery was not quite as spectacular as expected. Remember to pay and display in the car park before sorting a ticket out. We traveled in a carriage as it was an inclement day which does impede the view...More
