From the comfort of your seat in some of the oldest working carriages in operation today, your adventure begins! Some of these carriages date back to the 1920s and served throughout the golden age of rail, and some featured in the Harry Potter movies, and have all been lovingly restored. These traditional carriages will be hauled by diesel for the first part of the journey, then from Hellifield/Carnforth the steam engine pulls the train across the Settle to Carlisle, England's most scenic railway. The train stops in historic border city of Carlisle in Cumbria for a break of around 2 hours.

Customer Reviews

A Great Railway Adventure, Southport to Whitby on the Esk Valley Explorer

We traveled on The Esk Valley Explorer, from Southport to Whitby. We joined at Wigan, the train arrived on time much to the confusion of the commuters to Manchester.

The Portsmouth Pullman


My wife and I booked this trip to join the train in Loughborough Leicestershire to go to Portsmouth in Pullman dining class. The train arrived exactly on time and we had two seats facing each other in classic rail carriage which was restored to a very high standard.
