There's a wealth of opportunities to explore at the Severn Valley Railway. Enjoy an exciting steam train ride along our scenic, 16-mile span through the beautiful Severn Valley countryside, from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth.

Explore any of our six, beautifully-restored stations or head to our Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley, which is packed with informative, interactive displays, including the Peter's Railway Young Engineers Centre and our new 50th Anniversary exhibition, taking visitors on a journey through the first half-century of the Railway.

While there, you can also get up close to our reserve collection of full-size steam locomotives, sort the mail in the travelling post office or marvel at the majestic King George VI Royal Carriage as well as the range of Railway memorabilia and artefacts. If you are feeling peckish, our Flag & Whistle Food Stop offers great food and panoramic views of the Severn Valley. Kids will also love our outdoor, railway-themed play area.

Our packed events calendar includes Family Fun Days, Food Festival, Spring and Autumn Steam Galas, Diesel Gala, 1940s Weekends, Sounds of the 60s, Peep Behind the Scenes, Steam & Whistle Summer Holiday Activity Club and our ever-popular Santa Steam Specials.

We're currently celebrating our Golden Jubilee and were this year voted as Heritage Site of the Year by BBC Countryfile Magazine, so come along and see why!
