My favorite part was travelling on a beautiful steam train what an experience. (This review is a bit late as I went after the 1st lock down was relaxed but before Wales fire break lockdown). Well worth going my son booked the tickets as he always goes up to this railway and he was always talking about it. So we all went we had the most fabulous day and the weather turned out lovely which was a bonus. When covid is under control well worth going. You will love it. I will most definately be going again.

We visited Severn valley on Christmas Eve for the Santa train and absolutely loved it, I’ve not been in the train since I was a kid and it brought back some wonderful memories, and what made it more special was I got to share the experience with my daughter. We can’t wait to come again next year with our added addition to the family. All the staff were polite, helpful, stuck to covid rules and very grateful when I handed a donation. The only thing I could pick fault with was that there wasn’t any hot water in the toilet on the train and it was very chilly in the compartment, and maybe putting wipe able seat padding on the benches in the show as I ended up with a numb bum with being 8 month pregnant, other than that it was amazing and well worth the money

Steam in lights was perfect. Beautiful train and private compartments, lovely atmosphere and interest for the kids while us parents relaxed and enjoyed the surroundings. Very covid safe and didbt feel crowded. Friendly staff improved experience even more. Thank you! Will join you again next year!

During these difficult times the Santa Express was a refreshing and most enjoyable trip when everything else is closed. The trains are kept if an amazing condition, the children felt they were on a mixture of Polar Express and train to Hogwarts. The Santa show was a great way for the kids to get to experience a trip to see Santa given the social distancing we need to maintain. The presents left on the train when we returned was a fantastic touch that made the experience even more magical. Many thanks to all the people who work at SVR who went out of their way to help us and made the whole experience truly magical.

A wonderful, magical experience for children and adults alike. This was our first trip on the Santa Train and we were all so impressed with the care and thought that had been taken to ensure a wonderful time for all. We loved the forecourt with the reindeer, gingerbread people and sleigh. Our granddaughter was amazed by “the snow”. We will be back.
