Bus Connections to Minehead from Watchet Published: 27th March 2019

The West Somerset Railway starts running again this weekend!

We will be running services between Bishops Lydeard and Watchet Station.

We have been fortunate enough to secure a free bus connection for those that wish to continue on to Minehead Station where the Buffer Stop Shop and Turntable Cafe will be open.

This weekend we will have Free Vintage Buses leaving Watchet Station, to travel all you need to do is present a West Somerset Railway Rover Ticket to the driver. 

For the remaining running days up until 18th April, our rover tickets will be valid on Buses of Somerset service 28 from Watchet to Minehead (return).

Thank you to both West Somerset Railway Chairman Jonathan Jones-Pratt and Buses of Somerset Managing Director Alex Carter for their community support.   

Please ensure that you check the timings of services to ensure your connections.

To travel on the bus all you need to do is purchase a West Somerset Railway rover ticket which will entitle you to travel.

Timetables for the Vintage Bus service on 30th and 31st March only can be found here 

Timetables for the Buses of Somerset timetable connection can be found here

Return tickets from Bishops Lydeard to Watchet only by train are also available without the bus connection.
