The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a heritage railway in Gloucestershire with an exciting timetable new for this year which allows visitors on nearly all our running days to experience two or more forms of motive power. The line was primarily built (1900-1906) to improve through services from Birmingham to Bristol and the West Country. It also carried fruit from the highly productive farming areas both in the Cotswolds and the Vale of Evesham.The railway is now a living museum and offers a 25-mle round trip between Laverton and Cheltenham Racecourse through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds.There are cafes, shops, buffet cars and things for children to do. Events include Steam and Diesel Galas, Classic Vehicle Days, and Days out with Thomas. Come to Toddington, Winchcombe, or Cheltenham Racecourse stations. Free Parking.
There are so many things I could talk about with this attraction and it his hard to know where to start, so I will just stick to the facts. Run by mainly volunteers this attraction is one of the biggest in the midlands. Steam Railways normally have the persona that you have to be an enthusiast to visit them, but definitely not the GWSR. I'm not a huge steam railway enthusiast myself but I found this particular journey really fascinating. Throughout the United Kingdom I'm pleased to say, there are a number of steam railways, all are great in their own right, but the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Steam Railway is most certainly one of the UK's Top 10. Steam isn't the only journey you can take here either, there's the diesel journey as well. Also worth mentioning is the narrow gauge railway adjacent to the station at Toddington, which is also worth a trip.
What a fantastic Bed and Breakfast! It is ever so stylish and charming. Set in an idyllic location, in the picture perfect Cotswold Village of Broadway, it is a fabulous destination for visitors wanting to enjoy a relaxing getaway with their loved one. *
