The West Somerset Railway runs between Bishops Lydeard (nr. Taunton) and Minehead along 20 miles of track bordered by the Quantock and Brendon Hills and along the west Somerset coastline. Every seat offers stunning views to wooded valleys, soaring hills and Exmoor National Park.

With 10 stations to stop off at and explore the railway is ideal for discoverers of all ages. Each station is unique in its own right and the best way to explore all is with the West Somerset Railway Day Rover ticket. Rovers allow unlimited travel and maximise your journey and allow you the chance to explore our gift shops, cafes and museums.

The railway plays host to special events including steam galas, fish & chip specials, Murder Mystery and Exmoor Mystery Tours and is open with regular services from February to November, with Festive trains in December.
