Quite a lovely price! Valid on most days until 31st October; great if you're local. 2 Adults = £13.50 (Usually £27), 2 Adults and 2 kids are £17.50 (Usually £35).

From Travelzoo:
For half the usual price, you and a friend can hop aboard the quaint Victorian and Edwardian carriages on the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway and take in the views of the Yorkshire countryside. Two return tickets are £13.50, or you can visit as a family for £17.50.

What's Included
  • Two return tickets for the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway
  • Tickets are valid between Embsay and Bolton Abbey stations. You may start from either station
  • A family voucher for two adults (16+) and two children (age 4-15) is £17.50
  • Children under three can travel for free but you must add a ticket for them when booking
  • Valid on select dates until 31 October, 2023—check the timetable for full validity (first option on the left in the list). Your voucher is only valid on dates where Standard tickets are available—if you only see First Class options then your voucher won't be valid on that date

More Reasons to Go
  • The railway has been featured in Michael Portillo's BBC TV series, "Great British Railway Journeys".
  • The restored Edwardian and Victorian wooden carriages will carry you through the picturesque Dales countryside.
  • The "charming" journey "conjures up scenes from countless classics of English literature," says Good Housekeeping.

    Is there anything to do once you've reached the stop?

    It doesn’t stop in a village or anything - it’s very scenic and I think when we went (a while ago so it might have changed) there was maybe a cafe and a little book shop. Not much else, but very pretty. We regretted not getting the same train back though

    It's a bit "middle of nowhere" - either end is just short of 2 miles (walk) to either Skipton or Bolton Abbey - both worth a visit. The trip is a nice scenic one, on a slow plodding train - but a nice journey - we've done the afternoon tea on it which was well worth is.

    Well worth the money for this offer.

    The walk to Bolton Abbey is really nice and there is a pub/hotel to break it up if you want. Last time we did this trip I saw an owl on the fence at the side of the line. Not saying I can promise the same sight but I think at this price it's worth it.

    If you can’t promise the same sight, I’m not going.

    Very nice day out! A bit far from me, but really appealing. Good to support these heritage lines.

    Hi How long does this journey take to travel there and return on the train? Thank you 
    UncleWilly's avatar
    That depends on where you live. What's your address?
  9. darknesskai's avatar
    Bolton Abbey is a half hour walk away from the station but only a 5 minute drive. Are there buses or taxis at the station?
  10. anthonyduffy526's avatar
    Nope, the station is very remote to say the least at the Bolton Abbey Station end.
