Decided to travel to Bridgnorth from Kidderminster on the steam train. At £19 return a little bit pricey when paying for the family but if you have young children you can get a family ticket which can save quite a bit. Great experience and well worth a visit.

The Severn Valley Railway is a wonderful day out. The train journey is an hour long each way which gives plenty of time to enjoy the steam experience. On the train there is a variety of styles of coaches, including compartments where small groups can be self-contained. There is a buffet car and an at-seat refreshment trolley. One unusual aspect...

The Severn Valley Railway made our weekend away in Bewdley a great success. We bought Freedom of the Line and tickets to Ladies Day on the SVR web site. The tickets arrived but we managed to leave them behind when we travelled to Bewdley. We called SVR and explained and through the efforts of two wonderful people at SVR, Martin... More

My first trip on this railway was a good one- mainline loco, decent rate of knots, not too long in each station and at seat buffet service- sit back and enjoy!

We travelled from Australia to attend this weekend and are so glad we did. I took some convincing to dress up in 1940's kit but I'm happy I went to the effort and really immersed myself in the whole event. We attende the VE Day big band event on the Saturday evening and danced our little socks of before catching... More

What a lovely experience it was to go back in time to take a relaxing steam train journey on this beautiful line. Its great to see so many young people enjoy it as well. Bridgnorth is a lovely town to spend a couple of hours in. The engine house is also well worth a visit.

Had a lovely day out on Severn Valley Railway. Went from Kidderminster to Bridgenorth and back, stopping off at Bewdley on the return trip. Was surprised to find the cafe closed at 4pm and had to walk to the local pub to get food and drinks for our group. Otherwise an enjoyable day, pleasant, friendly staff and beautiful stations to...

A lovely old railway. Goes from Kiddeminster to Bridgenorth. Stop off at Highley on the way for a steam engine museum "Engine House". Buy "the freedom of the line" ticket and jump on and off how you like. A must for visitors in this area!

Last week, I spent the day with part of my family. We arrived at Kidderminister in time to catch the first train to Bridgnorth. We travelled in the 1st class carriage, in which we had to pay a small fee for the upgrade. The trains and carriages were excellent and very comfortable. On the way back, we visited the Engine...
