Very well organized railway, trains are well looked after and the staff are very enthusiastic and helpful. Bridgnorth station is a delight. Without doubt this is one of the best steam railways anywhere.
We visited the Severn Valley Railway on New Years Day. We started off at Bridgnorth and went to Highley station to visit the museum. We paid £59.00 for a family ticket which is for 2 adults and up to 4 children, so it isn’t a...More

Living in the county, a visit to the Severn Valley Railway is always a treat. It is a delight to experience a live steam hauled journey and the rover ticket allows for freedom on the line to enjoy at leisure. Stop off mid-way at the...More
The excursion was bought by others as part of my 70th birthday present.
Brilliant time spent dining in an old BR carriage hauled behind tank engine number 7714.
The drink and food was well-prepared and presented to table by pleasantly helpful SVR staff. Having to...More
This was brilliant. First time on a train pulled by a steam engine. Lovely countryside from Bridgenorth to Bewdley and back, which was about an hour each way.
Train conductor was fantastic and very helpful and informative.
Might try the afternoon tea trip next time
We attended the 40s weekend back in May and loved it so much we bought an annual pass. It’s great to just hop on the train every now and again. Every visit we see something different. It’s fantastic. Lovely people along the way that work...More

As the railway was built originally in the late 1850's as a branch line all stations were built to the rules of the day where disability was not thought of by the builders, all stations were built just for use of normal public. When the present day SVR took over the Railway in the early 1960's they took over the railway as it was built, that is stations not exactly designed to cater for passengers with disabilities, but as the laws changed the railway found ways to improve access to stations for passengers that are disabled. On every Station except Country Park Halt and Northwood Halt there are wheel chair ramps and every train has a wheel chair ramp in one coach to facilitate the carriage of passengers using wheel chairs,the railway has or is rebuilding coaches with wheel chair access plus both train and platform staff will always endeavor to help passengers on and off trains and platforms with any type of disability,as a worker on the Railway and what I have written is nothing to do with the management of the railway, I can not understand what went wrong on your visit as when I work on the railway my colleagues and I make sure any one with any form of a disability is looked after like an able bodied person and are given their dignity to come on the SVR and enjoy their day out just as much as any one else which in this day and age is their right. Our stations can not be redisighned with lifts and under passes due to historical status and cost so we the staff do all the helping of disabled passengers to the best we can do after all we are all volunteers
York to Kidderminster via Peak District (5 Replies)
We will be in England in a couple of weeks. We are planning to take the train from London to York to see the Railway Museum. The next day we will be renting a car and traveling to Kidderminster for an overnight before spending the day at the Severn Valley Railway (do you see a pattern here?) We decided we might like to stop in Stratford for a short visit along the way. According to Google Maps it's only an extra hour if we go via the Peak District instead of the more direct route. Does this...More

It’s a perfectly reasonable journey, but I suspect slightly different to much of Florida! The bugbear is likely to be motorway repair work around the west and north of Birmingham which can snarl up at times and add to the end of your journey, a “pit stop” before you get there would be in order.
What to see and do in February? (7 Replies)
We are staying in Ludlow Valentines weekend, can anyone recommend places to visit nearby, have been to Ironbridge before, is the Severn Valley Railway worth doing? Also can anyone recommend anywhere for a meal the night of 13th (Sunday)? Thanx

Yes Severn Valley Railway is worth doing. Also can explore Bridgnorth market town, they have Cliff Railway taking you from low to high town. There is also Brosely nearby town which is interesting. A lot of our Hall's and houses will be closed at this time. If you enjoy walking in beautiful countryside there is the LongMynd and town of Church Stretton which is about 40mins away. Dining it depends how much you want to pay we have a variety on offer. You have your expensive ones which have...More

Thai Rests for Wolverhampton; Ironbridge; Severn Valley Rail (1 Replies)
Hi ! I'm whisking my husband away for a surprise weekend to visit Ironbridge and Severn Vallay Railway. We will be staying in the Wolverhampton Novotel ('free' with Tesco Clubcard Deals !) for the nights of the 27th and 28th of June. We love Thai food - any ideas for one evening meal ? As we will be there for 2 nights another recommendation for the second night would be appreciated. Good Chinese or Indian for preference. We're quite happy to spend £25 - £30 per head. Or is the...More

Re: Ironbridge ... what sort of info do you need? Have you looked at the web sites for the Gorge Museums? Do you know about Dale End Park, are you interested in the Coalport China museums, the Tar Tunnel or any of the other numerous museums? Do you plan a lunch/dinner date on the banks of the river? How much time do you anticipate spending here and how much on the SVR? Are you planning on going to Bridgnorth for the trains or are you using another stop? Do you like walking? Would a trip up to...More
