AboutWelcome to Lakeland's oldest, longest and most scenic railway!
Join us as we journey 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 our final destination, Dalegarth-for-Boot Station. This is a sunny and wet weather attraction with open top and closed carriages for your comfort and the best views. The journey itself was one of Wainwright's favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England's highest mountains, the Scafell Range!
There are lots of things to do including shopping facilities, a museum to explore, adventure playgrounds to conquer, places to eat and drink with free Wi-Fi and plenty of trails and walks to discover in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park - there really is something for everyone!
Opening times vary according to season See our timetable for more details. This is the just the start of your adventure right here!
