One of the most popular vintage steam railways in northern Britain.

For a little piece of history, this 19th-century, standard-gauge railway is full of the romance of the steam era.

The lost-in-time carriages huff and puff their way along tracks from Lakeside to Haverthwaite via Newby Bridge and back, journeys timed to perfection to coincide with timetable for Windermere Lake Cruises.

Combine a train ride with a lake cruise or a visit to one of the nearby attractions.
