Step back in time and experience what it was like to travel by steam train with a ride through South Yard on our original steam locomotive, taking in the changing landscape and waving to passengers on the miniature railway.

The steam ride will only be open during school holidays. We're working on plans for special steam ride events that will take place during these periods. To keep up to date with the latest events and museum news please sign up to our email newsletters.

Under 12s need to be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are £3, under 2s ride free.

When you’ve finished your ride, why not head over to the catering outlet in South Yard, where your ticket will get you a £1 tea, Americano coffee or children’s fruit cooler. Or, if you fancy something a bit sweeter, the Yorkshire Dales ice cream trailer is offering ticket holders a free flake with every cone purchased.*

*Steam ride ticket must be shown to redeem offers.
