it was a day of nostalgia for all generations to enjoy - 5 star There was plenty to do to keep everyone amused and cafe and shop were very reasonably priced. Train carriages were spotless inside and all enjoyed the train ride and a wonderful day to remember

A brilliant way to explore Shropshire! All the volunteer staff are a credit to Severn Valley Railway. Would definitely recommend stopping at Highley and Bridgnorth however all the stops seemed lovely. It is also great for all ages!

What a fabulous place! This has been on my 'must see' list for years but have never managed to get around to visiting it, so when I spotted a local trip that was visiting the Steam Gala I jumped at the chance and I certainly wasn't disappointed. We arrived at Kidderminster in time for us to visit the museum on... More

The trip on the railway was a really relaxed way to pass the day. We arrived early to look around the station and thought we would go first class it was only £3 each way to upgrade and well worth it. The staff were so friendly and helpful. On getting our tickets we asked one of the staff could he... More

This railway is very much a love letter to Britain's railway heritage as travellers are given the opportunity to take in beautiful scenery on carriages being pulled by either diesel or steam locomotives. The Severn Valley Railway also operates special services such as the Saturday night Fish & Chip special which I highly recommend. There are opportunities to grab a... More

A great pleasure of 16 miles ride from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster on a steam train. Getting excited when the train whistle blowing, brought back to the old days. On the way back, we travelled on first class carriage without extra charge. Great fun!

Left from Brignorth on a raining start but the run was great - we stopped off at the visitor centre and roamed around the many exhibits. Re boarded the train after watching the steam trains coming in and out of the station. Went on to the end of the line. Surprised to look out of the window and see 2... More

I had a full day of 7 hours on the railway and enjoyed every minute of it. The special pleasure were the lovely teak LNER carriages all lovingly restored. The staff were friendly and helpful and the whole day was something to remember. All volunteers and all wonderful people... Well done... I had a lovely day!

There is nothing not to like about this heritage railway. Everything is superbly preserved, locomotives, carriages, stations and there is pretty much something for everybody within any age group (male or female). Check out their website at www.svr.co.uk and give it a try. It's not the cheapest day out but is surely does rank as one of the best.
