Located on the outskirts of the 'Heartbeat' village this small railway station is packed full of delights for the railway enthusiast - and pleasantly located, interestingly quaint and picturesque enough for the rest of us to enjoy too. Nestling in a little glen with a river and waterfalls this retro station (featured in the Harry Potter franchise) is well worth... More

Lovely station in the heart of the North York Moors. A popular stop on the NYM steam railway. Very well kept with a small shop and cafe.

A beautiful, quaint station on the North Yorkshire moors rail line. All Harry potter fans should visit at least once. A good place to catch a train and enjoy a beautiful part of Yorkshire.

We wandered down to the station to watch the santa special steam train come through during our weekend stay in Goathland. The station, although undergoing work on the platform, was very tidy and well kept. It was fantastic to watch the train pull in, full of little children and their families. It took us back to when our own were... More

Thank you for your review. The trains hadn't in fact been cancelled that day, they were never timetabled to run as our main season had finished. We hope that you will come back when the service is running. More

A beautifully kept period station. Authentic signs and street furniture. It looks amazing. Famed for being the Hogwarts station in Harry Potter. Really popular with tourists but everyone was really friendly. I'd wanted to go for ages and wasn't disappointed at all

By luck rather than planning, our visit coincided with trains arriving on both platforms. Able to get up right next to the steam locomotive - fun for kids of all ages. Definitely worth a stop if in that part of the Moors.
