Nothing to dislike only to dream on back all those years ago when all it was steam trains as a boy and getting a quick telling off for touching a part of the train that you new shouldn't be touched . We'll the s v r have done all the hard work and it's well worth the cost to the... More

Went for a repeat trip on the Severn Valley railway. Parked at Bewdley as it's less crowded than Kidderminster. Beautiful day, lots of grandparents out for a trip with young children, but all beautifully behaved. Always an interesting trip, and you get a free booklet describing the points of interest along the route. Would thoroughly recommend.

A great day out with fantastic views along the Severn valley and helping the dedicated railway enthusiasts to maintain this great piece of history. At Bridgnorth we walked to the cliff railway for our journey to High Town where we found a pleasant cafe for lunch before our return trip to Bewdley. Recommended.

This was Coventry Model Railway Club's annual outing for 2014. We went by train from Coventry to Kidderminster (excellent value at £8.20 even for those of us who had to pay full fare. Make sure you get a day tripper and extension). At the Severn Valley Railway I bought a return ticket to Bridgnorth for £18.00, which is, in effect,... More

This trip was a birthday present for me where we went together with another couple. It was sunny day which made the whole day even more enjoyable experience. We had a lot of fun from the moment when the train arrived at the station until we came back. We only had one stop as we decided to go for a... More

We didn't plan to go on the railway, it was a spur of the moment decision. We had an all day ticket (£36.00) for the two of us, and hopped on and off all day, had a great day out would highly recommend it

This was part of a weekend trip with National, and the bad weather delayed our arrival,so we only had a short time to see Bridgnorth. The journey to Kidderminster was very scenic and all the staff we met were very friendly and the drinks and snacks trolley on the train was very welcome. We would have liked to have spent... More

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
