Crossing the Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines, the Settle to Carlisle Railway is 73 miles long and offers a great way for visitors to experience a great deal of stunning landscape all in one go.
The line was constructed in 1870 and has been under several reconstructions since then. Due to its popularity with locals and visitors, the Settle-Carlisle Railway was kept open after an attempt to close it in the 1980s. Now passenger numbers are in the millions and the route is extremely popular with those wanting to experience the Yorkshire Dales like never before.
Passengers also get the opportunity to ride in Fellsman Steam Trains on selected days during the year, allowing for a truly Victorian experience on the line. Take in the 24 arched viaduct at Ribblehead or enjoy the sweeping views of Wensleydale all from the comfort of a steam train.
