2024 Steam Season

23rd March – 3rd November 2024

At Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, travel back in time when you climb aboard our steam train. A distant memory of bygone years for some and a new experience for others, it’s a unique day out for all.

Established in 1973 The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway is a family run business in the heart of the Lake District.

Steam engines haul traditional 1950’s carriages through the countryside scenery of the Leven Valley, leisurely transporting passengers to Lakeside Station, where connections are available with Windermere Lake Cruises.

The quaint surroundings at Haverthwaite Station entice guests to stay a while. At the Victorian Station you will find… a Tea Room, Gift Shop, Engine Shed, Woodland Playground and Walk.

The station welcomes dogs and they can even ride the train for FREE!

Gift Vouchers

Now valid for our 2024 Season.

Travel onboard our steam train, or maybe climb onto the footplate with our crew to enjoy the view from the cab of a locomotive. You can also treat someone in the Tea room to some of our delicious delights!
