Join us this summer and try out our brand-new film trail. We’ve got literally tonnes of fun for you in the shape of our giant steam engines and hands-on family activities throughout the summer holidays and best of all KIDS GO FREE*.

All through the week you can travel and walk in the footsteps of your favourite film and TV stars as you follow our Lights, Camera, Traction film trail - just print off the map, or pick-up a copy during the summer holidays and enjoy.

You can meet CURIOUS CREATURES, find out if you’re a SUPER SPY, and become an AWESOME ARCHAEOLOGIST. Plus, make your own wand and hat, travel to Goathland Station, which was transformed into Hogsmeade Station in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.
