What an incredible setting for a wedding! Took place in ticket office, followed by journey on steam train!! Staff couldn’t do enough! If I ever get married again, I’m doing it here!!!


We’ve a special feature on a recent Bride and Groom, Ruth & Danny, which can give you a flavour of how special your day could be with your wedding held at Bolton Abbey Station.

We’ve another feature: For this wedding, the bride chose to arrive by steam train, the ceremony was in the booking hall, and our historic Mark 1 coaches were utilised (which allowed the guests to mix freely and provided flexible options for the on-train catering with the Buffet Car).

We held our marriage ceremony and wedding breakfast at the railway ~ ceremony in the booking office and the reception on the steam train, Beatrice, as we travelled up and down the line. My bridesmaid and I arrived in style via the steam train from Embsay to meet the guests at Bolton Abbey.

The train crew were wonderful, there wasn’t a thing they weren’t prepared to do for us to make our day special. Stephen Walker, the station manager, was fantastic both in helping us arrange our day but also ensuring everything went as planned. Sue from Heavenly Teas provided a superb high tea for us all and there was an abundance of beautifully freshly prepared food.

Not once were we rushed and we were made to feel so very welcome and special. Words can not describe how amazing and unique our day was, we are just sorry it is over but we have the most amazing memories. We loved every second of our day on the wedding train ~ beautiful food, wonderful people, stunning scenery, spotlessly clean railway station and fantastic steam train. Thank you so very very much.
