Loved our day trip from Pickering to Whitby and the train being hauled by steam was an added bonus. Beautiful scenery, friendly and helpful staff. Would recommended highly to anyone visiting the area.

Hi, which stretch of the line from Pickering to Whitby offer the most scenic views? Would like to break up the journey as am travelling with children. Pickering - Whitby (1 hour 40 mins) and then back is too long for us. I could do either Grosmont - Whitby - Grosmont or Pickering - Grosmont - Pickering. Appreciate your advice.

Which station on the route has the best largest car park. Don't want to drive 2 hours and find we cannot get parked on a Saturday and not be able to catch train we've booked tickets for. Travelling from South Yorkshire

I have only been to Grosmont. Large car park pay and display. I will presume there is a car park at Pickering.
