  • A throwback to a bygone era of steam when life wasn't so hectic. A must visit attraction on the North Yorkshire Railway.
  • Have been on this route a few times including the NYMR 175th anniversary. Way to enjoy steam trains and step back in the era gone by. Take your time to wander around each station from Pickering to Whitby.
  • This has been viewed worldwide as the station in the Harry Potter films, as well as in Heartbeat and other TV programmes. Nice cosy tearoom, friendly staff, a small souvenir shop and close to the village (up a steep hill). Worth a stop off from the train ride.
  • Lovely train station like from the children story. I'm not surprised Harry Potter has been filmed here
  • Lovely station and only a short walk into the village centre
