The delightful Severn Valley Railway is a full size railway service running regular steam-hauled passenger trains between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, largely along the scenic River Severn. You may join the line from several stations, not just the one marked here as the address! Highlights include crossing the 200ft Victoria Bridge, which parents may remember from 'The 39 Steps' film. Or not!
The area being isolated in terms of roads, your family will be treated to splendid views which are only visible from the Railway, with naturally wild landscapes and twee country stations, each one offering local villages and riverside walks for serene exploration. It makes for a marvellous adventure for all levels of activity, whether you're hoping for a sit and stare trip or a jump off and see what you can find version!
Leave the train at Highley for a visit to The Engine House, the exciting Visitor Centre. In this charming building your chuffer children can ogle their reserve collection of steam locomotives, plus railway themed exhibitions, a quaint gift shop and Buffer's Family Cafe and Restaurant, with glorious balcony views across the Severn Valley.
A great one to take a camera along to, especially if you've got one that the smalls can use! Better still if it's nice and sunny why not bring a sketch and notepad and let them amp your adventures on and off the rails!
