For groups of 20 or more, booking in advance gives access to group discounts and reserved seating.

The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway welcomes pre-booked group visits, especially from Schools, Playgroups, Women’s Institutes, Social Clubs, etc. Groups are welcome on all operating days.

We have a large parking area for coaches, easy turning at both stations and a large cafe at Bolton Abbey which is particularly suitable for coach parties.

Steam trains run every Sunday throughout the year, up to 7 days a week in Summer and most Bank Holidays. Please consult the Timetable for full details.

Group return fares between Embsay and Bolton Abbey stations apply for groups of 20 or more, when booked in advance. This gives a discount of 10%, so prices for 2018 will be:

Adults: £9.90
Children: £4.95

Please note that Group discounts only apply to standard fares and not special events.

You can use the form below to request a booking – ensure you consult the timetable and make sure you choose a date on which we are running trains! (On non-operational days, it may be possible to charter your own private train which is especially suitable for Group Visits).

After we have received your enquiry, we will contact you to confirm the booking.  Please note that all requests are provisional until confirmed.
