From the heart of Middlesbrough to the historic seaside town of Whitby, Esk Valley Rail passes through the North York Moors National Park and serves sixteen stations along the route, including Great Ayton which is just one mile from The King’s Head Inn.

The railway also offers an enjoyable, environmentally friendly and stress-free way to view and explore this magnificent landscape.

“Leaving Teesside, the train chugs out across the North York Moors… Along the leafy valley through Danby, Egton and Lealholm – surely the prettiest village in Yorkshire – to Whitby’s bracing sea air, fine Georgiana and looming Gothic church… It will make you sigh.” The Sunday Times.
