The Severn Valley Railway has all the ingredients for a great day out this Easter, with steam trains, fantastic events and plenty to explore.

Visitors can climb aboard one of the SVR’s heritage steam locomotives for a journey along the stunning 16-mile line, from Kidderminster in Worcestershire to Bridgnorth in Shropshire.

Passengers can hop on and off to explore any of the SVR’s six historic stations, or head to The Engine House Visitor Centre, packed with interactive exhibits, including full-size steam locomotives.

While there, children can enter a ‘spot the Easter Bunny’ competition, with great prizes on offer and the chance to win a family ticket.

Visitors can also meet the engine that collided with a camel, learn about how the SVR works and sort the mail in the travelling post office and kids can let off steam on the outdoor play area.

If full-size steam trains weren’t enough, people can take a ride on the Coalyard Miniature Railway at Kidderminster or marvel at the Paddock Garden miniature railway at Hampton Loade – operating on selected dates, weather permitting.
