Attraction Information:
Opened in 1869 by the Midland Railway as a through-route between Birmingham and the South Coast the line was later linked to the iconic Somerset & Dorset Railway. Closed under the Beeching Axe of the 1960's the Avon Valley Railway was preserved by an enthusiastic group of volunteers.

Today, 40 years on, three miles of track has been re-laid, locomotives and carriages restored, and the sound of steam can once again be heard along the Avon Valley.

The Avon Valley Railway is more than just a train ride, offering a whole new experience for some or a nostalgic memory for others. It's a real treat for the whole family!

The Avon Valley Railway’s site at Bitton is open every day except Christmas Day and there’s free entry to our station buildings.  We operate steam or diesel trains 120 days a year, mostly at weekends plus some weekdays during the school holidays.

Our Buffet is open daily from 9am serving breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea and our gift shop is open on our train running days. See the timetable to find out when our next trains are running.
