Steam railway

For many people steam railway it's an occasion to enjoy family time together, soaking in the rich variety of flora and fauna plus that special beauty reserved for this part of the Lake District. Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is the longest and the most exciting steam railway in the Lake District. It uses the oldest in the world working 15" (38.1cm) gauge locomotive, which runs for seven miles (11.3 kilometres) from the Lake District National Park's only coastal village of Ravenglass in the Western Lake District, through hidden Miterdale, to the grandeur of the Eskdale valley. The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway is also the steam railway which brings you back in time through the ever changing scenery of the Leven Valley to Lakeside at the foot of Windermere.
