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.

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.
