Summer on the KWVR

Steam Trains & Vintage Scenic Bus Tour

From Saturday 20th July to Sunday 1st September steam trains will be operating everyday and once again the Railway will be offering passengers the chance to take a Vintage Bus scenic tour of the area around Haworth & Oxenhope.

When the weather is kind, the bus operator may run an open top bus for you to take in the beautiful moorland views, out in the open. The trip is free to holders of Day Rover tickets.
