We were staying near Whitby and boarded the steam train at Grosmont for the return trip to Pickering. You can't beat the relaxing chug of the steam train as it goes up the steep incline to Goathland. Just a great experience all round.

Hi Kim, The trains run on a timetable, but there is a decent stop at Pickering. I think we had at least an hour and half to enjoy coffee and a walk. The journey is about half hour from memory

Hi yes you can, the full timetable is on the website, and you can buy your tickets on the day from the booking office. The returns are hop on hop off so get the early train so you can get off at the other stations too.
