Severn Valley Railway

The Severn Valley Railway provides a wonderful throw back to a bygone era. This heritage steam train and diesel service operates scenic journeys through delightful Shropshire and Worcester countryside.

There are services running from Bridgnorth in Shropshire and Kidderminster and Bewdley in Worcestershire. Predominantly a steam-hauled passenger train service, the journey takes you along a 16 mile journey through the charming Severn Valley and alongside the River Severn.

Trains run most weekends throughout the year and daily from May to September. The Railway also operates during all local school holidays including Christmas time, where children can take a step back in time on a magical journey to visit Santa’s grotto. The SVR also arranges a variety of special events throughout the year.

.One of the most popular is the 1940s themed weekends. Plus the rail enthusiasts are catered for with a number of speicla events.

Visit The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley. Here you can view an exhibition of steam locomotives, browse the gift shop or relax and dine in the restaurant and gaze at the lovely views across the valley.

Tickets can be booked in advance online or by phone – often with discounts available. You can purchase tickets on the day of your visit also, although it’s best to book in advance to avoid disappointment. It starting your journey at Bridgnorth, we suggest booking the ‘Freedom of the Line’ Bridgnorth to Kidderminster ticket – as they offer free admission to the Visitor Centre at Highley in Shropshire.
