Vintage Train Sundays

Sundays 9th June – 14th July

2019 will once again see the Railway offering passengers the chance to travel as our forebears did over 100 years ago with our Vintage Train service that will be operating on six successive Sundays during the warmer Spring and Summer months, starting on the 9th June.

Trains will consist of coaches from our museum collection, including the ‘Old Gentleman’s Saloon’ made famous in the 1970 film of ‘The Railway Children’,  hauled by a steam locomotive built in the reign of Queen Victoria.

Step aboard the ‘Old Gentleman’s Saloon’, made famous in the film The Railway Children, to a time long gone, when courtesy and luxury went hand in hand. Sit back and relax as you are served a glass of Prosecco to be enjoyed with seasonal strawberries and cream.

Vintage Scenic Bus Tour

Vintage Scenic Bus Tour

20th July - 1st September

On weekends from the 20th July to 1st September and weekdays from Monday, 22nd July to Friday, 30th August, in addition to the steam passenger services, why not try a Vintage Scenic Bus Tour from Haworth or Oxenhope of the upper Worth Valley area, free to holders of a Day Rover.

If the weather is fine an open top vehicle may be used – time to blow away those cobwebs whilst enjoying views over Haworth Moor and a very different view of the Worth Valley. Don’t forget a hat and sun tan lotion if the sun shines – it may be cooler on the top deck, but that sun will still burn.

The Haworth Haddock is back for the 2019 season with the first ‘Haddock’ of the year on 27th April. Don’t delay as seats fill up very fast. Do you have a special occasion, birthday or anniversary, seats on the Haworth Haddock make a perfect gift for someone in your life or a great way to celebrate your special occasion.
