My family booked a murder mystery dinner to celebrate my birthday. A little chaotic at the start with no staff around to direct people to the queue they needed to be in and when I asked a staff member, she said I would that's the queue you need although when it came to boarding, it wasn't! Once boarding started it... More

I booked a Murder mystery dining experience for my wife and I as a treat and something different!. It was! During the day we travelled on the various steam and diesel hailed journeys up to Bridgnorth and the intervening stations...most enjoyable and all well decorated for Xmas especially the Kidderminster station. But in the evening, when returning for the dining... More

We took a trip on the Severn Valley railway with a young cousin to visit Santa! All of the volunteers were extremely friendly and helpful and genuinely made it feel like they couldn't do enough to help you! When visiting Santa we didn't feel like we were rushed at all and he took ample time to talk to my cousin... More

Wow. had a brilliant time on the Severn Valley Railway today. Superbly organised from the time we arrived, with a screen showing the departure time slot of the train that was being queued for. A member of staff very clearly announcing to join the queue and the time of departure with a big board to show the end of queue... More

A lovely day out for all. My daughter enjoyed the train ride and loved meeting Santa. All the staff were very friendly and sang carols with the children on the train. All the kids got a soft toy as a gift, which was of good quality.

We take a trip from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and back about every other year and it is always a highly enjoyable mix of nostalgia, lovely countryside and views plus excellent real ale which is to be had at both terminuses (Railwaymans Arms at Bridgnorth and King & Castle in Kidderminster). The Bridgnorth station buildings are original but, despite the appearance,... More

Not a cheap day our but well-worth it. The scale of the railway was surprising and impressive. There seemed no end of locomotives, rolling stock, sheds, shunting areas and sidings. Every station looked like something from a bygone day, each with something of interest. You could spend the whole day alighting and exploring different places. There seemed to be dozens... More

Just lovely. There is something special about a stem train, old fashioned station staff. The museum was excellent & the staff most helpful. Lovely just to wander around & take phots.
