Enjoy an Autumn day out on a steam express service from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead return.

The service will leave Bishops Lydeard at 11.45, meandering through the Somerset countryside and along the coast to Minehead where you can enjoy Fish and Chips (tickets must be bought in advance for the fish and chip element, fish and chip ticket holders must board from Bishops Lydeard). The service will stop at all stations (except Doniford) however, some station facilities may not be open which means tickets will need to be purchased on board the train. The train will then arrive in Minehead for 13.04. You will have just over an hour in Minehead to explore the Buffer Stop Shop, visit the Turntable cafe and perhaps take a stroll on the beach (Minehead beach is dog friendly at this time of year). The Minehead Express will be leaving from Minehead at 14.40 where a cream tea option is offered. 

(Unfortunately dogs are not permitted in coaches where fish and chips or cream teas are being served.)

Annual passes are valid on these services, to purchase a Fish and Chip and Cream Tea add on please contact us direct on 01643 704996.
