Robson Green takes the roads less travelled across his beloved North East England. With friends and family, he finds wellbeing and adventure in wonderful places. We are proud to announce that the Weardale Railway features in this series. Learn all about our heritage line which Robson visited with actor Lee Ingleby in June last year.

'Weekend Escapes' is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer. The Weardale Railway features in episode 13 that was originally broadcast on BBC2 on the 17th January.
