Ravenglass Steam Railway

Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway - Lakeland's oldest and longest scenic railway.

Why not take a trip from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:55 gradient at times, en route to a final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station. The journey itself was one of Wainwright’s favorites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft) at their peak.

At the other end there is something for everyone, with plenty of trails and walks to explore in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park with ‘Britain’s Favourite View’, Wastwater, just around the corner.
