If you visit the Worth Valley this is a must. Steam trains never disappoint and it’s a lovely line and you can get up close and see the amazing engineering at work

Easily accessible from the main Leeds to Carlisle line at Keighley. The line pulls up to Haworth for visiting all things Brontë and on to Oxenhope to see the vintage carriages. Can get off at any station for local walks.
