Dunster by Candlelight sees the medieval village turn its back on the present and lights it's streets with lanterns. The atmosphere is both traditional and exciting, truly an event for all ages. Travel in style with the West Somerset Railway and avoid all the stress of parking.
One train service will run per day and depart Bishops Lydeard at 16.30, returning from Minehead at 20.30.

Both trains will depart from Bishops Lydeard and will run non-stop to Minehead station where the park and ride connection service will connect passengers with Dunster.
The cost of this transfer is included in your ticket. The bus will bring you back to Minehead station to connect with your return train journey. Please allow at least 30 minutes to catch a bus back to the WSR as there may be queues for the buses.
We have a limited number of Fish and Chips seats available on both days. This incudes a bottle of local beer or cider, or a soft drink. Please note there is no buffet carriage on this train but snacks and hot drinks can be purchased from the welcome marquee before boarding the train.
