Severn Valley Railway is among the most admired in Britain and is a truly wonderful experience for steam railway enthusiasts of any age. Severn Valley Railway operates full size trains and its 16 mile track connects directly with the national railway system at Kidderminster.
A railway treat
A journey on the Severn Valley is a real treat and even if your children haven’t experienced steam trains before they’re sure to be in awe of the smells and sounds of their first time. Climb aboard and take your seats for a journey to be remembered for a long time. Running along the Severn, the railway passes through some of England’s loveliest countryside
Stations on the Severn Valley Railway
Bridgnorth, Hampton Loade, Highley, Arley, Bewdley and Kidderminster stations make up the stops on the Severn Valley Railway (SVR) and each has its own attraction.
Disembark at Bridgnorth (the base for SVR) to see some amazing vintage locos and rolling stock up to 80 years old and venture in to the nearby town for gift shops, Saturday street markets and cafes . Choose to stop at Hampton Loade for a lovely picnic spot and a ride across the river on a foot ferry (the last in England!). Highley brings you the wonderful Engine House while Arley and Bewdley have great riverside walks. Kidderminster has a miniature railway and great road connections making it a good place to start your SVR day!
The Engine House
The Engine House is the Visitors Centre and a great deal of thought has been given to making it inspiring and exciting for young minds. There are railway exhibitions to see and a great restaurant with stunning views across the Severn Valley
