Our Fares . . .

Just the ticket!

But which fare is best for you?


To spend a whole day on the Railway, our "Freedom of the Line" ticket is your best value option. This ticket allows unlimited travel during the day between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth and free entry into The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley.

"Freedom of the Line" tickets are also valid for use during special events when normal fares apply, such as: Open House Weekend,  Steam on the Road, On the Buses, Classic Vehicle Day, Christmas Gift Fayre and Festive Season Service.

These tickets are not valid during Special Event days where revised fares apply, such as: Spring Steam Gala, Spring Diesel Festival, Step Back to the 1940s, Autumn Steam Gala, Autumn Diesel Gala, Ghost Trains, Steam in Lights or any Santa Experience. 

Freedom of the Line tickets can be purchased in advance online at least 5 working days before your visit, so you can avoid the queue when you arrive. You'll also receive a 15% discount on our 2020 fares.

Please note that there is a booking fee of £2 on all advance bookings.  This is per booking, not per ticket.

Loyalty Pass 2020 - enjoy 15 months’ unlimited visits for the price of 12 with the all-new LOYALTY PASS, including FREE entry to the Engine House Visitor Centre.
Our LOYALTY PASS offers great value to those looking to make repeat visits in a single year to the Severn Valley Railway, permitting one or two named adults (plus up to four children aged 4 - 15 in the case of the family pass) to travel as many times as they wish on our normal services through the year.

In addition it also gives you 15% discounts on purchases from our refreshment rooms (excludes alcohol) and gift shops, access to reduced price tickets for some special timetable events (galas and Step Back to the 1940s weekends) and priority booking for extra-special events such as Santa, Steam in Lights and Halloween.

The LOYALTY PASS is available to buy in advance online, over the telephone, from our station booking offices in Kidderminster, Bewdley or Bridgnorth or from our Visitor Services Department at Comberton Place in Kidderminster. Our brand new Loyalty Pass is a great way to visit the Severn Valley Railway as many times as you like during a 12-month period.

Because the Railway has taken the decision to suspend services during the COVID-19 outbreak, the validity period of each Loyalty Pass will be extended by one month for every month we are out of action; at this stage, of course, we cannot tell for certain how long this will be.
Loyalty Pass:
One adult (no children)
£125 £115
Two adults (no children)
£225 £215
One adult & up to four children
£175 £165
