Began the day at Kidderminster and caught the train to Bridgnorth on a warm and sunny day, staff were very friendly, served coffee on the way. On the return journey stopped at Highley and visited The Engine House and the Flag and Whistle for tea and cake. Terrific day out...

We decided to go on the Severn Valley Railway as it was raining hard and not good for walking. I am glad we did it was very interesting. So romantic chugging along in a private compartment. Lovely stations along the way. We stopped off at Bridgnorth and found the town interesting with lots of liitle old pubs and shops.The Engine... More

When you arrive at the station at Kidderminster you are instantly caught up in the atmosphere of a bygone era. The shops and café are retro-styled and so are the platforms. There is a railway museum at Kidderminster. And it gets better and better as you go along. Depending on what sort of ticket you buy, you can get on... More

We boarded the train at Kidderminster and had a wonderful journey through some beautiful countryside. There were many things to see en route and other passengers were only too pleased to point out things of interest with us not being from the area. We stayed on the train for the return journey, as we were on a busy schedule, but... More

I simply love this railway. I have been going for over thirty years and they keep it so well. I wish they could extend it bipeyond Bridgenorth, but it is wonderful the way it is. A great trip down the Severn Valley no matter what time of year.

I took my mother to the seven valleys railway and to our surprise it was a 1940s event. Both staff and visitors looked amazing as were the classic cars and trucks! Overall we both enjoyed it hugely. It was an all day event and we didn't get bored once. I would highly recommend this attraction and would also recommend the... More

Brilliant day out through gorgeous countryside. Every station is a little gem, immaculately kept with beautiful hanging baskets. The trains are fantastic! First class bars serving real ales at Kidderminster and Bridgnorth station. Good value for money. Visited a few times now, and will go again soon. Never get bore with it, Highly recommended.

The Severn valley railway is one of my favourite place to go. The staff are so helpful. And the scenery is amazing. I never get bored going here. All of the stations are wonderful places, I definitely recommend a country walk in bewdley (I think) a nice long walk. The towns are really nice places- Kidderminster being my favourite. There...
