The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway is a volunteer-run, preserved Heritage Railway which does not receive any grants or subsidies towards running. It runs over part of the former Skipton-Ilkley line which was closed in 1965 and has steadily been rebuilt by the volunteers. Skipton is the next target.

Travel between Embsay station, built in 1888, and the award-winning station at Bolton Abbey. Your journey takes you through picturesque Yorkshire Dales scenery. Bolton Abbey station is the ideal stopping off point for a pleasant one and a half mile walk to the ruins of the 12th Century priory. Venture a little further to picnic on the banks of the River Wharfe, or in the shade of Strid Wood where you will find the Cavendish Pavillion for refreshments.

Station Facilities

Refreshments are available in the tearooms. Most services also include a Buffet Car serving a wide variety of local bottled ales, hot drinks and much more. Both stations feature gift shops, including the famous bookshop at Embsay station. There are picnic areas at all stations, including Holywell Halt, with facilities for the disabled at Bolton Abbey station. Ample free parking is available at both Embsay and Bolton Abbey stations. Bolton Abbey station also plays host to the Hambleton Valley Miniature Railway - a 71/4" gauge line within the site.
