New for 2018 - Gin Tasting Experience

In partnership with the Gin & Sin co, we invite you to join us for a very special experience. Travel through the Somerset Countryside whilst sampling a selection of gins and learning about the history and process of gin making. You will be able to sample 5 artisan gins with suggested botanicals and different types of tonic. After sampling, choose your favourite gins from the samples to enjoy three full measure Gin and Tonics. 

Your gin tasting experience will take place on one half of the return journey (full length between Minehead and Bishops Lydeard) depending on which ticket you select. The Gin experience you will choose will either be the 14.15 from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead or the 16.15 from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard*, allowing you to chose the other half of your journey to best suit your day. For example - if you chose the 14.15 from Bishops Lydeard, you could either have this as the start of your journey and return from Minehead on a later train or start your journey in Minehead on the 12.15 and the gin tasting would be your return journey. 

All seats are arranged in tables of four - if you book four seats, you will be seated together, if you book two or singles, you will be seated with another party. 

Over 18s only. Please arrange suitable transport home, do not drink and drive.

* Please note, it is advised that if starting your day from Minehead, it is best to purchase tickets that leave Bishops Lydeard at 14.15. The 16.15 service leaving Minehead will not offer a connection to return to your start station.
