Half Term Passenger Services
The Spring Bank Holiday sets the trend and the KWVR follow that for the rest of the half term school holiday.
Our services will cater both for families and groups who would still prefer a degree of COVID19 protection and visitors to the Railway that would like the freedom of the Railway we all enjoyed prior to the pandemic.
Over the Half Term Holiday we will be running a TWO train service. One service will be steam hauled and consist of compartment carriages (for pre-booked round trips) boarding at Keighley and Haworth and open coaches boarding and alighting at Keighley, Ingrow and Haworth plus a heritage diesel service serving Keighley, Ingrow and Haworth.
Subject to availability tickets for compartments and Day Rovers will be available to purchase on the day.
Pre-booked Compartment Carriages
Haworth and Keighley Round Trip
We’re offering pre-booked return journeys using private compartments, seating 1 – 6 people. Return journeys will depart from Haworth and Keighley, and will include a break at Oxenhope where you can stretch your legs and pose for photographs next to the engine. Oxenhope Station: Passengers may not visit the Exhibition Shed which is closed until late June.
Passengers are asked to keep your distance where possible but be aware it may not be possible to socially distance at all points throughout your journey. Passengers are not required to wear a face covering when seated in a compartment but a face covering is necessary in all enclosed parts of our stations.
