Itinerary

Description

All aboard! Join us for a trip down memory lane on this delightful Yorkshire getaway. We enjoy a journey on the heritage Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, travelling through breathtaking landscapes of heather and windswept moors on a railway that has become synonymous with The Railway Children. To make our day even more magical, our journey is steam-hauled by the Green Dragon, the famous Victorian locomotive which starred in the iconic 1970s film! We carry on retracing Bobbie, Phyllis and Peter’s footsteps with a visit to lovely Haworth, where recognisable filming locations include the cobbled main street, Brontë Parsonage and more. With the long-awaited sequel, The Railway Children Return, set for release this year and starring the original Bobbie Waterbury, there is no better time to celebrate one of Britain’s best-loved railways!

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to Leeds where we spend the afternoon at leisure. From hitting the shops to exploring the museums, there is plenty to do before we head to our hotel for dinner and our overnight stay.

Day 2

Following breakfast at the hotel, we head to the charming village of Oxenhope. Here we climb aboard our heritage steam train on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway for a nostalgic 80-minute journey in the company of the famous Green Dragon, newly repainted in the original black of the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway. As we meander through stunning countryside to Keighley, soak up the delightful sights and sounds of steam travel on the railway made famous by The Railway Children. Afterwards, we enjoy free time in Haworth, where the Brontë sisters spent much of their lives. Boasting a historic cobbled main street, the village offers quaint tea rooms, craft and gift shops, tempting restaurants and cosy pubs while the Brontë’s former home, Haworth Parsonage, is now a fascinating museum. We rejoin the coach in the afternoon for our journey home.
