We went with a 4 year old and a 8 year old for Christmas. The queue was long, with the carriage damp, small and dirty feeling ( I appreciate there old !) with the stop in Bridgnorth turning out to be another very very long queue to see one of the 20 santas to then wait again for a train... More

On Sunday April 26th I visited the railway, commencing at Kidderminster 10:30 AM, breaking at Highley for the museum, continuing to Bridgnorth and return. The three locomotives and their rolling stock I used were sparkling, the stations very well presented and the Team helpful, friendly and exceptionally smart in uniform. The scenery and attention to historical detail (oil platform lamps... More

BEWARE....when you arrive at Bridgnorth the town centre is at the top of a very steep hill....jeez I have a slight disability and getting to the top of the hill left me out of breath... More

We have been on the Severn Valley Railway many times and always enjoy the experience, and in the past have thoroughly enjoyed the cream teas but this season it has all changed. Today was very disappointing as we were expecting the excellent choice of cakes that have always been served, but no, all that was on offer was one (very... More

We travelled a long way to ride this railway and it did not disappoint. It was everything that a heritage railway should be. The attention to detail both on the train and the various stations was extraordinary. A totally wonderful day.

Always great for a day out, especially the event weekends, i.e. 1940's event in June/July. Great fun to get dressed up and join in with the celebrations. Refreshments are available on the train and at the Station with souveniers and gifts to buy - its a really good day for all ages.

We live within walking distance of this wonderful attraction. Apart from the most wonderful journeys to Bridgenorth with interesting stops on the way, it is lovely just to go and visit the station which has a pub, cafe, shop. Like stepping back in time to days we remember. Always busy, lots of event days too.
