From Our Editors

Ecclesbourne Valley Railway offers a traditional steam travel experience through the rolling plains of the Peak District. The railway begins at the ancient market town of Wirksworth and terminates at Duffield, home to the 48-acre Eyes Meadow nature reserve. The restored diesel trains sport vintage decor and a host of period features. Steam enthusiasts can opt for hop-on hop-off travel with a day pass, embark on a murder mystery trip or enjoy a three-course dinner as the train rolls through the Derbyshire countryside.

Well-run organisation. Relaxing rail journey through pleasant countryside. Comfortable train and nice and warm on a cold day. The car park could be better signposted as it seems to appear at the end of what looks like a cul-de-sac.

Had a lovely day on the trains. The volunteers do a great job and are very knowledgeable and helpful. We started at Duffield and went to Kirksworth a lovely little town.

Absolutely great night out and worth the money. Lovely meal and although we are not train fanatics ( many were) it was a great way to spend a few hours. Most staff are volunteers but they could not be more friendly.
