If you are aged between 18 and 64 you will be classed as an adult on the West Somerset Railway and will require an adult ticket. Adult Rover tickets entitle you to unlimited travel on the railway for one whole day and can be purchased online in advance of travel. If you require any other adult ticket then these will need to be purchased on the day at the booking office.
Our senior Rover tickets are for passengers 65 and over, please let us know at the time of booking if you require a senior ticket so we can ensure you are charged the appropriate price.
Our disabled rate ticket applies to disabled passengers; we also permit one carer per person to travel at the same rate. If you will be bringing a wheelchair, please take a look at our accessibility guide for information on size and weight restrictions and information on our accessible coaches.
On the West Somerset Railway our child ticket applies to those children aged 3 to 17 inclusive. Under 3's may travel for free when accompanied by a full paying adult. If you have 2 children over the age of 3 it might be more cost effective to purchase a family day rover.
Our Family Day Rovers cover travel for either 2 adults and 2 children (aged 3-17) or for 1 adult and 3 children (aged 3-17).
We are a dog friendly railway. Tickets for dogs can be purchased for £2.50 for whatever journey you would like all we ask is that dogs remain on the floor of the carriages and do not travel on the seats. We also ask for dogs to not be in the buffet car or in any carriage where food is being served. This means that dogs are not permitted on any of our dining services or specials.
Passengers with a disability travel at a discount off the adult travel rate. There are no disabled concessions on our special services such as dining specials, combined ticket deals and Festive Fun services (Santa, Carol & Dunster by Candlelight). Please see our Accessible Guide.
Seven consecutive days (ticket not valid on special event days marked purple or pink on our timetable) : Family £99.00, Adults £48.00 and Young Persons £24.00

Bicycles may be carried on the West Somerset Railway for a fee of £2.50 per bicycle providing there is enough space in the guards van.
