THE FRIENDLY STEAM RAILWAY WELCOMES YOU AND YOUR DOG(S) !
Come to the lovely village of Cranmore, near Shepton Mallet, Somerset to meet our friendly staff and take a relaxing ride on our heritage steam train.
The train journey is approximately 40 minutes over our 5 mile round trip and you are welcome to ride as many times as you like on your visit! We are one of very few steam railways where you can visit our Engine Shed and Workshop, as well as enjoying our small Museum, Signal Box, Miniature Railway (Signal Box and Miniature Railway open on specific days), Shop and Whistlestop Café serving delicious home-made meals each day we are in steam (please note: the café will offer a limited service from 11.45am–1pm when our Sunday Lunch service is running ).
Please allow at least 2-3 hours to relax and enjoy your steam train ride through the beautiful Mendip countryside as well as visiting the other parts of the railway. Our friendly staff are always available to assist in any way, if you have any queries or require any help.
Dogs travel free on the train and are allowed in all areas of the railway apart from inside the cafe and on dining carriages.
