England’s Most Scenic Mainline Railway

Mention Settle in Yorkshire to many people and they will say “Settle to Carlisle Railway Line”  As the head line suggests the views are magnificent, and all from the comfort of your seat on the train.

rom the iconic Yorkshire Three Peaks of Pen Y Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, the dry stone walls and limestone outcrops, vast uninterrupted moorland vistas and of course sheep! When on the train you don’t see much of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct itself, but you certainly know when you travelling over it! Then after passing the highest mainline station in England at Dent you venture into Westmoreland then onto the green pastures of the Eden Valley to reach Carlisle two hours after leaving Settle.

The station in Settle is very quaint and a step back in time, with the back drop of the Yorkshire Dales.

You can catch the train north departing about every 2 hours (or so during the day) timetables from Northern Rail
