The North York Moors Railway
The NYMR is the one of the largest preserved heritage railways in the UK in terms of route mileage and passengers. It runs for 24 miles through the picturesque Moors landscape. As a result and, unsurprisingly, it has featured in many TV shows and films including Heartbeat, Harry Potter and Downton Abbey and the latest Mission Impossible.
Pickering Station is a must see 1930’s themed station, transporting visitors back in time to the nostalgic steam era and a bygone age!
