“Oh Gosh saw a snake!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Liked the train ride up to Goathland .carriage was clean also the windows. As we pulled in there was a snake slithering up the platform. Thought to myself 'should I alight from the train?' Of course I did but didn't see the snake again. Lovely walks round by the station, very pretty in the sunlight, although there wasn't much of that kind of weather that day.

“Best little station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

wonderful! that's what i think of this place, station master very friendly, the place was spotless, the flower beds beautiful, and the staff really friendly. Lovely place to sit and watch the STEAM trains, Yes you read it right the North Yorkshire Railway is one of the last remaining railways that have working steam engines and they are magnificent to see and smell reminds me of when i was younger (gee i sound old) ha ha. It is the most wonderful even romantic place to go its timeless i love it.

“A step back in time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

I liked: The old style platform ticket that said Aidensfield. The quaint old bridge. The live-in railway carriages.

“Felt like an actor in Heartbeat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

As a massive Heartbeat fan, I was thrilled to visit this charming little station, which is located in a beautifully picturesque area. Every time I see this station now on Heartbeat it takes me back to when I was there! Don't forget to visit the village as well to see the Aidensfield Arms, Scripps garage etc. A wonderful day out. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
