Children Go Free

When you are wondering what to do with the children this Summer, as in years past, children will travel for free.

Every day through June, July and August , when accompanied by an adult with a Rover ticket, children will travel for free on regular KWVR trains subject to our terms and conditions for this offer.

A Rover ticket includes entrance to the Museums at Ingrow and, on certain days, a tour of the area by vintage bus.

What's on


In the May 2015 half term holiday, the Railway is having a special visitor. Following the success of the Studiocanal feature film PADDINGTON™, the world famous bear from Peru is making a guest appearance on Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th May 2015 at Keighley and Oxenhope Stations.

Paddington will be making personal appearances at intervals both at Keighley and Oxenhope throughout each day as follows:
Keighley: 1155-1215, 1345-1405 and 1525-1545
Oxenhope: 1105-1130, 1240-1310 and 1430-1500

Children who come dressed as Paddington, Red Hat and Duffle Coat etc will receive 25% off a Day Rover ticket.

In addition there will be children’s activities at Ingrow West Station.

Along the line

The Keighley & Worth Valley is unique in that most of our trains convey a real-ale buffet car, serving real-ale from traditional hand pumps. The buffet car also serves tea, coffee and a selection of soft drinks & snacks – but it’s the real-ale that is the real treat for our passengers.

We publish every week in our News section, the guest ales that are on offer from the buffet car.

The Railway mainly uses local breweries, but we have often have specialist craft ales from breweries further afield. There can be up to three separate real-ales on board – we usually try to at least have two!

If you are in the area when trains are not running, or you need a snack to start your day during train running days, then the staff at the Oxenhope Buffet, situated on the platform in a Mark1 buffet carriage, will be happy to serve you with a nice hot bacon or sausage butty to get you off to a fine start to the day. So fill up your tenders and replenish your tanks with a good hearty roll and a hot drink to make sure your day gets off to a good start.

Or when you are ready for lunch, drop by to top up your reserves with some good honest Yorkshire pie and peas, washed down by a bottle of pop or hot drink or, if trains are running, something from the on-board bar where hand pulled real ale is served all day on selected trains.

No visit to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway would be complete without stopping of at the 2 museums at Ingrow (West).

The largest of the two museums is the Museum of Rail Travel which has a display of beautifully restored railway coaches from an era gone by. All the coaches are accessible with video presentations describing the travelling experience you would have had if going by train all those years ago. The museum is open every day throughout the year, except Christmas Day, from 11.00 to 16.00.

The old goods shed at Ingrow is now the home of the Bahamas Locomotive Society who have established Ingrow Loco. Here you will find locomotives, displays, exhibits, and archive film which combine to create a story of the steam locomotive and the people involved in their manufacture, operation and maintenance. This museum is open weekends and selected days in summer.

Jubilee Bar – a venue with a difference

Do you have that special occasion coming up, be it a special birthday, engagement party, retirement or even looking for somewhere to hold your corporate event? The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway may well just have what you’re looking for and with something a little bit different from your normal venue.

Built as a standard Mark1 Open Corridor coach, the coach has been converted into a bar car, painted in mock-Pullman livery to complement the Pullman carriages and fitted with an authentic bar salvaged from a public house in Leeds. Named ‘The Jubilee Bar’ to commemorate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, this coach is perfect for a party requiring their own private bar.
