The Lakes Top Ten Attractions


The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway (Ravenglass)

La'al Ratty, as it's affectionately known, started life as a narrow gauge railway for transporting slate down from the hills. After a chequered history, its future was ensured through a dedicated band of volunteers and tourism. Now it's a wonderful family attraction, with miniature steam trains chugging along the valley from Ravenglass to Eskdale (at Boot station, a perfect base for walkers). A day out here was one of my favourite Lakes pastimes as a child, and the same is true for my own children. Very definitely A Top Attraction!
