Owner description: Reputedly the most beautiful train journey in England, this 15-inch, narrow gauge railway carries passengers along seven miles of scenic track, from the old Roman Port of Ravenglass (the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park) along the Eskdale Valley to Eskdale during a 40 minute ride. Experience the heritage steam engines on a stunning scenic day out.

We got a return ticket (which enables unlimited travel) and traveled to the end of the line, had a nice lunch then returned back in a 3 hour time period. Being a big fan of steam trains I loved the train & the journey is pretty spectacular. Just over a fiver each way is not bad value for money either.
