  • 1 Severn Valley Railway (Kidderminster Station), 1 Comberton Place, +44 1299 403816, . 09:00am - 17:00. The Severn Valley Railway operates full-size, mainly steam-hauled passenger trains along the beautiful Severn Valley between Kidderminster, Bewdley and Bridgnorth. Stop off at The Engine House, the Visitor Centre at Highley, to discover the collection of steam locomotives, themed exhibitons, and shop, restaurant and outdoor play area. Country stations at Arley, Highley and Hampton Loade are well worth a visit. A train ride not enough? Then how about a Footplate Experience where you can drive a steamtrain.
