We’ve picked out some of our highlights for this year for you

Whistlestop Valley Railway

Little railway, BIG adventures!  At the home of Yorkshire's Great Little Steam Trains you’ll find real narrow-gauge steam engines, outdoor playgrounds, a café, a miniature ride-on railway, an ice cream parlour, gift/toy shop and loads of good old fashioned family fun.

A return ride along the scenic 3.5 mile line can be completed in just over an hour or you can extend your visit by hopping off for a bite to eat or a play in one of the two fabulous play-parks.

The Whistlestop Valley Railway is usually open to the public on weekends, Bank Holidays and local school holidays, with special toddler/pre-schooler days on selected Mondays and Fridays, and special events throughout the year. Please check their website for the most up-to-date opening times.

From Roman finds to textiles; from birds to transport, Tolson is a treasure house of the fascinating, the curious and the amazing
