The Pullman dining experience on board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway offers a range of seasonal menus.

Departing from Grosmont Station, guests can board one of the NYMR’s historic Pullman dining carriages and travel through the heart of the North York Moors National Park while enjoying a meal.

Voted as a finalist in the Best Group Dining Experience category at the 2022 Group Leisure & Travel Awards, groups of all sizes are welcome once again for the 2023 season, but must prebook in advance and pay upfront.

Enjoy a vintage rail journey

Groups in search of a historic rail journey without the dining experience attached can still opt for a trip with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Railway highlights include Pickering Station, known as Hogsmede Station in Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone and which transports guests back to the 1930s and Goathland.
