The Railway

Sit back and enjoy a ride on Britain's biggest miniature railway!

The 20 inch gauge Scarborough North Bay Railway has been delighting generations of visitors since 1931 and is a must-visit attraction at the beautiful North Yorkshire seaside resort Scarborough.


Travel between Peasholm Station, the railway's hub next to Peasholm Park, and Scalby Mills Station situated next to Scarborough Sealife.

Your 30 minute experience offers a nostalgic way to travel but also doubles as a transport link. The train takes you on a 2-mile return journey around the picturesque Northstead Manor Gardens with views of Scarborough Open Air Theatre, before running in parallel Scarborough's stunning North Bay.

Children can grab a free copy of Percy the Cats' activity sheet, spotting landmarks along the way.



Trains are hauled by our fleet of heritage steam outline diesel locomotives, each with their own interesting history. 

And a journey can be enjoyed, regardless of weather conditions, with our semi-open carriages, fitted with roofs for the less pleasant days.

The train is wheelchair friendly, with a specially built carriage to accommodate two wheelchairs or mobility scooters on all trains.
