North Yorkshire Moors Railway

The beautifully restored station dating from 1847 makes a great gateway to this fascinating market town. This magnificent structure was re-instated in 2011 to the same design as the original, built by GT Andrews.

The station itself is a great place to pick up a souvenir or you can pop into the traditional railway tea room serving tasty meals and snacks. For something more luxurious head to Mulberries for an afternoon tea or one of Auntie Wendy’s wickedly delicious cakes.

Monday is market day and a great time to visit but there is always lots to do. Around the corner from the NYMR is Beck Isle Museum , where you can discover the Rosedale Railway plus the heritage, history and culture of life in Pickering. In the summer, visit Pickering Castle and explore this splendid 13th Century site.

Don’t forget to head up the Market Place to visit Pickering Parish Church, with its remarkable 15th Century wall paintings, or just browse the many boutique shops of this North Yorkshire Town. If you are travelling further afield why not visit Ryedale Folk Museum, Malton MuseumEden Camp or Castle Howard.
