A nice family day out taking in the old world experience of the Severn valley railway. If you have young children pushchair age try to have a small collapsible pushchair or use a harness instead as the trains are very ctamped. The visitors centre at Highly is good for kids and adults.

Finally a well organised gala, good locos especially the westerns, although some 'Sulzer' Power would have been appreciated At last the connections at Bewdley were held unlike previous efforts, in the past poor, this year the improvements were appreciated, thank you

I visited here after hearing good things about it. My first thought was that it is like stepping back in time. With the excellent attention to detail it is a great day out for young and old. Although not really a 'train' enthusiast I really enjoyed it and it was good fun.

Having been on various steam railways across the country I have to day this one is by far the best. We arrived early for the first train of the day and first enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the restaurant on the station at Kidderminster. The whole journey was first class from the friendly staff down to the wonderful views including... More

The railway travels through the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire and Shropshire and into the bargain you get pulled by real trains. For kids of all ages, not to be missed. A step back in time for body and mind!

Date of visit; 12.10.14 Number in party; 3 On a recent long weekend trip to Kidderminster, which by Saturday night was beginning to look like a bad dream, I was allowed to indulge in my passion for steam, and travel on the SVR. This was, by far, the highlight of the trip for all three of us. The day started... More

Stopped off here on the way back from RIAT in Gloucestershire. The Kidderminster Station Car Park is not that obvious to find - don't believe your sat-nav. The car park can be tight when trying to exit between two other cars. The station and museum are really quaint and worth spending some time looking round. The main event is obviously... More

We had always wanted to have Sunday lunch on board a steam train and this experience at the Severn Valley Railway was everything we had hoped for and more. We booked to travel on the Venturer and were lucky enough to have a table for four, to ourselves! Everything was beautifully set out from the crisp white table cloths and... More

We managed to get all day tickets at a bargain price but we all said we would have paid the full price - it's such value for money. My dad was a railway man (a wheel-tapper!) through the 1930s, 40s and into the 50s - so it was a great nostalgic trip for me. We travelled Bridgnorth to Kidderminster, then... More
