West Somerset Railway

Somerset wide

disabled access

Our railway, a true country branch line of the old Great Western Railway is full of fascination whether you are looking for a nostalgic ride back in time through lovely countryside or to study the railway and industrial heritage which our line preserves.

The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons, and the buildings of our ten unique stations linked by a twenty mile scenic journey will repay hours of exploration. The gently rolling Quantock Hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel with views of distant South Wales, confident church towers, Dunster's imposing castle and Minehead's seaside charm are all waiting to be discovered.

    Lovely trip half-way along the track & back. Carefully preserved and quite charming. We missed our stop on the return journey and the conductor went to great lengths to stop the opposite train & keep it (briefly) waiting while we ran across the footbridge to set ourselves right again! Highly recommended.
