This Railway tends to host special events to help give a little extra to the visitors attending. This includes Easter Egg Specials, Evening Eats, and even Santa Specials which is perfectly setup for a family day out. There is a quiet tearoom situated in Bolton Abbey Station and picnic area at both stations if you are just wanting a relaxing cuppa alongside the steam trains.
Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway is easy as it gets to visit with the long list of free coach’s that run there and back and the free car parking which is also provided at both stations. This attraction welcome groups with reserved seating and catering that can be arranged to suit the guests requirements.
