Our day begins with narrow gauge novelty at the Evesham Vale Light Railway near...Evesham, and is followed by a visit to picture perfect Bourton-on-the-Water.

Day 3 - Sunday

Today we embark upon a circular tour that starts by rail to Gloucester. Our coach collects us from the station and takes us into Gloucester Docks for the excellent National Maritime Museum. While we are here we must get on the water and so a boat trip is obligatory. Later, we cross the Severn and head into the leafy lanes for steam in the depths of the Forest of Dean at the...Dean Forest Railway – lovely! Our circuit Is completed by road via Ross-on Wye to Ledbury and rail back to Worcester - what a day out!

Day 4 - Monday

We have saved the best for last. A full morning, and some of the afternoon, dedicated to the Severn Valley Railway. An imaginative itinerary enables us to make the most of our time, visit the attractions along the line, and get some photography in. You will certainly want to call in at the impressive museum at Highley and maybe enjoy an uplifting diversion in Bridgnorth. Homeward bound journeys are from Kidderminster mid-afternoon.
