Details for Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway offers a breathtaking journey through some of the most picturesque scenery of the Lake District. The seven mile trip on these delightful, historic steam trains is a real step back in time, offering passengers the rare chance to see the true beauty of the countryside from the comfort of their carriage.    

Welcome to Lakeland’s oldest, longest and undoubtedly most scenic railway! Join us as we journey for seven miles from the delightful coastal village of Ravenglass through two glorious valleys to the foot of England’s highest mountains.

Each of our locos travel’s some 6,000 miles per year on average, hauling trains consisting of ‘breath of fresh air’ open carriages, practical open-sided ones and cosy covered saloons. That’s more trains, on a longer line, than any other heritage railway in the Lake District. As you might expect with Britain’s Favourite View and deepest lake in the next valley, England’s highest mountain at its head, Eskdale and indeed all the railway, is in the Lake District National Park – beyond the commercialism and hustle-bustle – simply surrounded by spectacular beauty.

What better way to watch the rich biodiversity of wildlife in the area than onboard our tranquil little journey. Keep an eye out for Buzzards, Red Squirrels en route and as our little steam engines travel from Ravenglass across tidal Barrow Marsh, keep an eye out for Oyster Catchers and Ringed Plovers.

As an integral part of the Kendal based Wakefield family group of companies we can offer all visitors purchasing a full line return ticket a voucher to cruise at half-price on an Ullswater ‘Steamer’ and 10 per cent off goods purchased at the Peter Rabbit and Friends™ shops in...
