It’s A Dog’s Life …

We regularly receive enquiries from passengers wondering whether it is 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!
