Journeys Through Art
Our steam railway travels through the incredible scenery of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, whose landscapes have always been a source of inspiration to artists. Bring your class to the railway for this activity to learn about exploring ideas about movement, recording experiences of a journey and interpreting a journey through art.
Railways use many different types of structure, including bridges, arches and railway buildings. Bring your class to the railway for this activity to learn about the scientific and engineering principles behind the structures of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
Victorian Classroom and Railway Journey
Victorian times saw the start of many things we find familiar today, such as Britain’s railways, although for most people, everyday life was very different. Bring your class to the railway for this hands-on workshop to learn about what it was like to go to school, to work and to play in Victorian times.
The Rail Trail
In 1865 the North Eastern Railway opened a new route for their railway between the stations of Goathland and Grosmont. The route of the old line has since become The Rail Trail, a pleasant walk through the tranquillity of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
