Group Travel

Book your groups trip along the Settle to Carlisle railway for 2021…

We pride ourselves on offering you the best group travel experience.  With their extensive local knowledge, our team will provide you with a wealth of information to ensure your groups journey is a memorable day out for all attending.

Our team will work with you to create a travel package that suits your groups itinerary. The Leeds-Settle-Carlisle experience can be part of a short-break or day trip and the reasons to travel with us are many- sightseeing from the train; walking in the Yorkshire Dales or Eden Valley; shopping or a night-out in Leeds, Skipton or Carlisle or a birthday or anniversary treat.

Your Groups Journey

Your journey can start and end at any of the stations between Carlisle and Leeds (or further afield) and the cost will depend on the journey taken and the date of travel. The diesel sprinter train service operates daily (except Christmas Day & Boxing Day).

Refreshments from the Region…

The Refreshment Trolley stocks a wide range of hot and cold drinks including filter coffee, tea, hot chocolate, latté, water, and fruit juices along with a selection of confectionery, crisps and much more. We also stock a range of merchandise for passengers to purchase and mark their special day out with.

We encourage Group Travel organisers to get in touch with our team to discuss how we can cater our offering to your group’s excursion along the rail line.

Find out about our on-train Refreshment Trolley service here. 

Coming Soon this Winter 2020/21

We will be adding a selection of winter themed produce to the Refreshment Trolley in the coming weeks.  What could be more perfect than a mulled wine and a trip along the iconic Settle-Carlisle railway?
