Safety First . . .

As a responsible tourist organisation and train operating company we take the safety of our visitors and staff very seriously indeed.Safety Booklet

All visit organisers are advised to refer to our booklet 'Essential Pre-Visit Reading For School Group Leaders' (please see 'Teacher Downloads' page). Please request the password for this when booking and do not hesitate to contact us with any particular queries.

Preview Visits

A preview visit is available for Risk Assessment purposes only. You will have the opportunity to meet with a member of our Education Team who can discuss your requirements and any issues or concerns you may have.

Free Adult Places

The Severn Valley Railway operates a free places scheme for supervising adults, which varies depending on the number of fare paying children. One adult will travel free with every ten paying children. In the interests of safety and discipline and in the interests of our staff and other passengers, school groups booking visits to the Severn Valley Railway must take up the free allocation of supervisors’ places.

Our Insurance

As you would expect from a train operating company, Severn Valley Railway (Holdings) PLC maintains comprehensive public liability insurance. A copy of our schedule of insurance cover can be found in our booklet 'Essential Pre-Visit Reading for School Group Leaders'.

Disabled Visitors

Some of our trains are specially adapted for use by adults and children who are less able. Please ask about which trains are most appropriate for the needs of your group.
