The trainline originally connected Victorian passengers to the Midlands, but was closed in the 1960’s due to government cuts. The railway was eventually re-opened by enthusiastic locals and began a new chapter, once again bringing columns of steam billowing across the rolling countryside.
Trains operate 120 days of the year, when classic steam trains huff-and-puff their way up and down the lines on a fantastic 3-mile trip into the depths of the West Country. The trip takes you across the River Avon, where visitors can relax and enjoy a picturesque picnic area by the river. A vast programme of other events and trips include Murder Mystery evenings, unique two- and three-course meal trips, and unbeatable driver experiences and courses.
The beautifully restored Victorian station houses a cafe and shop, and is the perfect resting point on the Bristol to Bath cycle path (itself a disused railway path).
Murder on the Avon Valley Railway - what better location for an evening of intrigue, suspicion and murder? Four times a year, victims and suspects are invited to take part in a railway themed murder mystery for a night of twists and turns, trying to find out whodunnit.
