Head out on one of the oldest narrow-gauge railways in England for a scenic 14-mile return journey through the beautiful Eskdale Valley along the foothills of some of Englands highest mountains, and top-up your energy levels with a cream tea at either end of your trip with this Lake District Vintage Steam Train Trip and Cream Tea for Two.
Having just celebrated its 102nd birthday as a 15in railway, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway has a whole heap of history running along its seven miles of surprisingly tiny tracks. Small tracks means small engines, and your covered or open-top carriages will be pulled by one of four small and highly capable narrow-gauge locomotives, one of which was first built all the way back in 1894!
Youll be able to soak in spectacular scenery across the Scafell range, Ravenglass Estuary and Eskdale Valley on your 40 minute journey, with lots of local wildlife to look out for as you wind up and down along the rivers Esk and Mite. At either end of your journey from Ravenglass to Dalegarth (and back) you can enjoy a cream tea for two (sandwiches and scones with tea/coffee) in the Turntable or Fellbites Cafes.
What happens on the day?
On arrival at the Ravenglass or Dalegarth Terminus youll get your tickets at the office before boarding your train. While every effort is made to provide a steam train for most journeys, occasionally a diesel engine will be provided to ensure the trains all run on time. A single journey takes 40 minutes, and at either end youre free to explore the cafes, gift shops and local area before returning to where you started.
Theres also a cream tea to enjoy in either the Turntable or Fellbites Cafe, with finger sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and your choice of tea or coffee, an ideal accompaniment to some Lake District sightseeing.
