If you’ve ever seen The Railway Children (and let’s face it, who hasn’t?) then the Keighley and Worth Valley will look very familiar, as the valley line steam train chugs right through the heart of the landscape that featured in the classic film.
The line was first built to serve the area’s mill trades, and these days steam trains run up and down the four and a half miles of track, giving visitors the chance to explore Bronte country in style. There are six stations along the line, and Ingrow West station is home to two award-winning railway museums. If you buy a Day Rover ticket for your journey you’ll be able to enter both museums at no extra cost too.
If you love all things railway-related you’ll be in your element, and there’s even a buffet car at the Oxenhope station so if you fancy a bite during your day you’ll be welcome aboard to snack in style. There are extra special journeys held throughout the year too, including spooky Halloween trains, Santa Steam Specials and Mince Pie Specials, and there’s even a Carol Service Train so you can mark the festive season with song with the famous Yorkshire scenery as your backdrop.
