Members & Shareholders - Important Information

Members & Shareholders, we’d like to thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times and thank you for travelling with us in 2020.

As we prepare to reopen for 2021, we wanted to give you a full update, so you have all the information on enjoying your visit.

Advance Bookings

The health and safety of our guests and our staff is our number one priority. In order to comply with government guidelines, we need to manage our capacity to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit. Because of this, all passengers will be required to pre-book a ticket online.


Since August 2020 when the Railway reopened after the first lockdown, SVR Members have enjoyed 33% off reserved tables of two or private compartments for four or six people. From July 19th, ​each member will instead receive 33% off the individual ticket price, ​with other non member passengers in the group paying the full ticket price. ​This matches our pre-Covid fare structure.

What Members will save when purchasing tickets:
  • Ordinary / Senior / Student – Members save £8.50 per table / compartment
  • Joint / Senior Joint – Members save £16 per table / compartment
  • Family – Members save 33% per compartment
To pre-book tickets, you’ll need to visit our Ticket Office and enter your Unique Identification Number (UIN) at the checkout to receive your discount. The UIN will be detailed at the bottom of your membership card in the format U123456 or M123456 - you need to enter the NUMBERS only.

If you would like to become a member in order to take advantage of the 33% travel discount, click here to find out more before booking your seat.


To thank you for your support throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2020 and during the first two quarters of 2021, all shareholders (with over 100 shares) received unlimited uses of the Railway in our compartment stock. However, new benefits are now in place that relate to your level of shareholding.

The process to book will remain the same (enter SH and your shareholder number in the discount code box), and you will now receive an entitlement related to your individual shareholding. This is similar to the arrangements before 2020.

The following arrangements will apply to standard excursion services:

 Previous entitlement in 2019 Online Booking System in 2021
100-224 1 FotL ticket Table of two, one use
225-399 2 FotL tickets  Table of two, two uses
400-799  4 FotL tickets Table of two or compartment of four, four uses
800-1199 4 FotL tickets, 1st Class  Table of two or compartment of four, eight uses
 1200+ Unlimited  Table of two or compartment of four, unlimited uses
*Freedom of the Line tickets. These must be handed in at the booking office on the day of travel.

Any benefits related to special events denoted as eligible remain unchanged as per the most recent Share Offer.

Any additional passengers not covered by your shareholding, will be able to purchase a reduced-priced ticket for £15 on arrival at the Booking Office to travel. Current bookings made by shareholders are being reviewed. If you are aware of any bookings you have made that are more than your entitlement, please contact us to arrange payment.

To pre-book tickets, you’ll need to visit our Ticket Office and enter your Unique Identification Number (UIN), preceded by SH, at the checkout to receive the appropriate discount. For example; Shareholder 1234, would need to enter SH1234 at the checkout. On normal days, Shareholders will receive a 100% discount.

And finally

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Severn Valley Railway.
