The Severn Valley Railway runs for 16 miles from Kidderminster in Worcestershire to Bridgnorth in Shropshire and boasts one of the largest collections of working steam locomotives and coaches, including some rolling stock which is over 80 years old. It hosts many special events throughout the year including visits by those children's favourites 'Thomas the Tank Engine' and of course 'Santa'. Other events include the popular '1940s Weekend', 'Classic Car and Bike Day' and 'Severn Valley in Bloom', which highlights the beautiful Station gardens.

The Railway also offers a wide variety of catering facilities ranging from the buffets at the main stations, a trolley service on the trains, through to the ever popular Sunday luncheon trains. These trains operate on most Sundays throughout the year and advance booking is required. The beautiful valley of the River Severn is best seen from the train or by alighting at one of the intermediate stations you can enjoy a walk along the riverside paths.
