Summer 2019 on the KWVR

Every day throughout the summer, in addition to our daily steam passenger service, why not try a Vintage Scenic Bus Tour of the Worth Valley area.

Steam Trains Every Day

Throughout the Summer, steam hauled passenger trains will be in action everyday until the 8th September.

At weekends there will be 2 trains in operation giving you an even better opportunity to explore the Railway and the surrounding countryside and villages.

Weekdays the first steam train departs Oxenhope at 10.00 and on Saturday & Sundays, just 15 minutes later at 10.15.

And why note book a Day Rover ticket on-line, at least 7 days in advance and grab a 10% discount on the pay-on-the-day fare.

Scenic Vintage Tour Bus

As in past years, the KWVR is operating a scenic bus tour of the upper Worth Valley in conjunction with Classic Vehicles of Yesteryear. 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. If the scorching sum continues don’t forget a hat and sun tan lotion – it may be cooler on the top deck, but that sun will still burn.

You can pick up the bus at Haworth Station, Bronte Parsonage or Oxenhope Station. From Haworth Station the bus heads up the steep hill towards the top of Main Street and the Bronte Parsonage. After stopping in a handy location for shops and attractions (at the bus stop adjacent to the car park at the junction of Changegate and North Street), the bus continues via Bronte countryside towards Oxenhope, providing stunning views on the way. The bus then takes a direct route back to Haworth with views across the valley towards Haworth.

This bus is FREE with any of our Day Rover tickets. A small charge is payable by other ticket holders. ENCTS bus passes are not accepted.

For times of the tours, these are included in the weekday ORANGE timetable and at weekend we have a separate BUS TIMETABLE. Just click on the link for the times.

If you don’t buy a Rover ticket, you can pay for a ticket on the bus. The fare for the journey is paid to the bus conductor on the day.
