    What an experience, a delightful trip on a steam train from Goathland to Whitby. The station itself is quaint and in keeping with train stations of the early to mid 20th century period  more »

    We went to visit this amazing station located in a small village in the hills British as mentioned in the Lonely Planet Guide as Hogsmeade station (Harry Potter). It's amazing, Harry Potter, as the whole country, populated by more sheep than people, it seems stuck in the past. Recommend you do store tour of "Center", the most picturesque is a garage that sells everything from ice cream, soft drinks, souvenirs, car repairs and services and funerals.

  • Travelled from Whitby to Pickering on the steam train and stopped off here for an hour on the return journey. Very well kept and a step back in time. Worth a visit and a trip on the steam train.
  • Lovely little place. Very jealous of the young blonde lassy who's got herself a job on the train. Covered in grease in her big black boots pulling levers and shovelling coal, made me super jealous. What a time she must have at work!
  • Nice family day out. Coffee on train very acceptable. People who run it clearly care.
  • Great private railway station. Featured in the Harry Potter films, look out for Hagrid!
  • Steam train rides, nice little station, short walk from goathland (aidensfield) village of heartbeat fame
