Departs –

From .

Take a journey through time on the vintage diesel hauled Jorvik and Scarborough Spa Explorer to your choice of the old Viking Capital 'York' or Scarborough, the timeless Victorian Resort. As with all West Coast Railtours you will have the choice of three classes in our vintage carriages.

After picking up at stations listed we depart Chester and make our way to York and then continue across North Yorkshire, passing by the historic market town of Malton en route to the coast and the resort of Scarborough. We expect to break for around three hours or so, plenty of time to wander through the bustling town centre and explore this famous seaside destination.

YORK: A city which needs no introduction, York is a city which caters for all. The city is a hive of culture and history complete with cobbled lanes, ancient buildings, stunning architecture and a choice of world class museums to visit. Its bars, cuisine and pubs also don´t disappoint, that along with its beer. Yorkshire Folk are rightly proud of the Ale they brew!

SCARBOROUGH: Alternatively, travel to Scarborough and enjoy roughly 3 hours break. With over 2,500 years of turbulent history it has been catering for family visitors to the Yorkshire Coast since the 17th century. There are plenty of places to eat and drink too, whether you want the traditional English fish 'n' chips widely associated with such resorts, or would prefer other cuisine!


PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning, a selection of pastries with coffee mid journey and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.

FIRST CLASS: First Class passengers will be served A selection of Tulip Muffins, Freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the outward journdy and a savoury refreshment box followed by cake of the day and Freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the return journey.
