We’ve had a lot of phone calls to our office recently, from passengers wondering whether it’s OK to bring their dog on the train with them. The answer is ‘Yes!’. The Settle-Carlisle line is part of the UK rail network and the normal rules apply. You just need to follow these simple guidelines:
Dogs (maximum two per person) must be on a lead, or in a secure appropriate carrying case.
Animals (or their containers) must not occupy seats, or a charge will be made.
The dog, or other animal, must not cause a nuisance or danger to other passengers. If it does, you may be required to leave the train.
So, if you have a well-behaved dog it’s more than welcome and, best of all, dogs travel free of charge!
