Stunning scenery, exceptional steam heritage and outstanding facilities, the Severn Valley Railway offers a wealth of opportunities for visitors.

Having recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, the SVR now welcomes more than 250,000 visitors each year.

The Railway’s lovingly-restored collection of heritage steam locomotives take visitors for a journey back in time, through the stunning scenery of the Severn Valley. The 16-mile line runs from Kidderminster in Worcestershire to Bridgnorth in Shropshire, and features six, historic stations for passengers to explore en-route.

The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley is the perfect place for passengers to break their journey. Packed with a range of interactive exhibits, including King George VI Royal Carriage, Peter’s Railway Young Engineers Centre as well as a host of informative exhibitions, the Engine House is also home to the Railway’s reserve collection of full-size locomotives. While there, visitors can enjoy a bite to eat at the Flag & Whistle Food Stop, with its panoramic views over the Severn Valley.

Anyone looking for a day out with a difference can head to any of the SVR’s fantastic range of events, including Spring and Autumn Steam Galas, Spring Diesel Festival, Step Back to the 1940s Weekends, Peep Behind the Scenes, Classic Vehicle Day, Ghost Trains and the ever-popular Santa Steam Specials. Steam Trains run daily between May and October, and at weekends and in school holidays from February to December.
