Esk Valley Music and Ale Train 2017

Up Spirits! performing on the Music Train

A mobile party, featuring musicians and a real-ale bar, runs every Friday during the height of summer. Apart from the glorious scenery, refreshments and live music this is an ideal way to visit local hostelries at villages along the line for a meal and a relaxing few drinks before returning on the train.

Goth Weekend in Whitby

Something different to enjoy in November. There is also one in April but the November one is the biggest and most popular Goth event. Travelling by rail avoids the problems of car parking in Whitby. You can spend two hours driving round trying to find somewhere on busy Saturdays.
