Enjoy a relaxed, unhurried and civilised journey on a steam train here at the East Somerset Railway. The majestic steam engine has been around for over 200 years. Seeing the trains in all their glory brings a real sense of history to your visit and there is always plenty to see, its an experience for everyone.

The East Somerset Railway operates steam trains throughout the year, view our Timetable for dates and times where your all day ticket lets you ride more than once.

If you live locally and visit the railway regularly then why not buy a Season Ticket or buy one as a present. Season Tickets

For children we have lots of events going on throughout the year such as Tractor Ted and Peppa Pig as well as other Special events including our popular Santa Trains.

For foodies or those who enjoy travelling in style why not sit back, relax and enjoy a lovely three course meal on our Mendip Belle dining train, or how about an afternoon Cream Tea in the summer.

The Whistlestop restaurant is open when we are in steam with delicious home made cakes, bacon butties as well as a choice of home cooked food made from local produce.

Our fully stocked Shop is open most days of the week for railway items. We have items for the casual visitor, children as well as for the die hard rail enthusiast and much much more.
