Attraction Information

Travel between Embsay station, built in 1888, and the new award-winning station at Bolton Abbey.

Your journey takes you through picturesque Yorkshire Dales scenery. Bolton Abbey station is the ideal stopping off point for a pleasant one and a half mile walk to the ruins of the 12th Century priory.

Venture a little further to picnic on the banks of the River Wharfe, or in the shade of Strid Wood where you will find the Cavendish Pavillion for refreshments.

On most running days, one of the Directors' Saloons will be attached, giving the opportunity for First Class travel in vehicles over 100 years old.
