West Somerset Railway

Unwind behind a steam train on the West Somerset Railway, an ideal day out for all the family in Somerset. The railway running between Bishops Lydeard (near Taunton) and Minehead allows travel through the Quantock and Brendon Hills and then along the Somerset coastline.

Trains run from February to November with everyday operation between May and September. Enjoy the ten different stations, all lovingly restored and maintained on a typical branch line of the pre-Beeching era. All the trains have buffet facilities serving locally sourced food and drink.
During the season, there are special events arranged such as Day out with Thomas, Steam galas. During December, the Santa specials are always popular in the build up to Christmas.
