Somerset Day

 

On 11th May 2019 the West Somerset Railway will be celebrating Somerset Day.

Bishops Lydeard and Minehead Stations will be hosting local craft stalls with representation from Community Groups across West Somerset.

There will be entertainment on the stations and education activities at Bishops Lydeard in the Gauge Museum. Brunel the dog, the West Somerset Railway’s very own mascot may even make an appearance.

Visitors will be able to board the trains to Minehead and discover other stalls at the rural stations along the whole line.

It will be a fantastic day – come and celebrate at one of the County’s most loved heritage attractions. Something for all ages!


To travel between stations please purchase a rover ticket for the day here.
