The West Somerset Railway

Take a ride with the historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons of the West Somerset Railway, a country branch line of the old Great Western Railway. The buildings of ten unique stations are linked by a twenty mile scenic journey through the beautiful Somerset countryside.
Discover the gently rolling Quantock hills, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel, Dunster’s imposing Castle and Minehead’s seaside charm.
Events take place throughout the year, including Murder Mystery Specials, Somerset Real Ale Trains, and Fish and Chip Specials! You can even book a one or two day course and learn how to drive a steam train!
