Really good experience going from Pickering 2 stops along and return, excellent staff and real experience of the old days. Slightly pricey at £21 but still worth while.

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.
