Schools / Group Visits & Charters

Since the formation of 'Weardale Railway Heritage Services Ltd' in 2014 which is a subsidiary of the Weardale Railway Trust', we have developed a successful series of excursions through Weardale both on normal scheduled trains and special chartered journeys. These journeys can be tailored to your requirements to cover all or part of the line and for single or return journeys. 

We have successfully operated with coach tour operators, private parties, family groups, and local organisations such as the WI, scout troops, schools, birthdays and photographic evenings. If you are interested or want further information please contact our marketing team via the Contact Us page.
