The Severn Valley Autumn Special


Saturday 16 November 2019

Bridging the gap between our summer excursions and our Christmas adventures, here is a great day out to Britain’s leading preserved railway – with plenty of added value to help you get the most out of your day!

Our outward journey takes us via Rugby, Coventry, Stechford, Aston, Perry Barr Junctions, Soho Junctions, Galton Junction and Old Hill Bank. On reaching Kidderminster our train crosses on to the Severn Valley Railway before reversing into the SVR terminus where you alight to the welcoming chords of a brass band.

For the next few hours you can very much do as you please. Your tour ticket will be valid on Severn Valley Railway scheduled train services, which will be specially enhanced in order to provide you with extra itinerary choices.

As befits the start of the festive season there will be a Christmas Gift Fayre taking place in the Engine House exhibition centre at Highley station, providing plenty of inspiration for that ‘different’ Christmas gift. Wander round the varied stands with the agreeable backdrop of steam locos and other preserved exhibits. Admission to this is also covered by your tour ticket.

When it comes to refreshment you have a more difficult choice to make as both the Railwayman’s Arms at Bridgnorth station and the King & Castle at Kidderminster will be hosting a real ale event. You will have the opportunity to visit both!

You will be able to rejoin our tour train at either Bridgnorth or Highley station and as darkness falls we return to the main line network, taking a longer return route via Soho, Perry Barr, Bescot, Walsall, Sutton Park and Nuneaton, giving plenty of time for diners to enjoy a splendid four course repast. And just to reassure you, we don’t serve turkey quite so soon in the season!

So do join us for a truly super day out, enjoying the ever-changing English scenery amid the autumn shades of yellow and gold.

First Class Dining includes the Great British Breakfast and a four course dinner.
