Teddy bears picnic!

Royal Ashton Hotel icon

Join in the fun at the East Somerset Railway for a trip down memory lane this August Bank Holiday and don’t forget to bring your Teddy.

Climb on board and ride the Steam Train to Mendip Vale and experience the nostalgic smell and sounds of steam as you make your way through the Somerset countryside – don’t forget that teddy bears travel for free. Take a walk down to the engine shed to take a peak at these fabulous engines up close and see what our volunteers are working on. 

Teddy bear storytelling will be taking place everyday across the bank holiday weekend. There is a play area which is perfect for younger visitors and plenty of space for you to enjoy your own picnic. The Station Café will also be open serving delicious meals, cakes and beverages. 

Pay Once… Ride all day: Our day rover tickets allow unlimited travel for the day of your visit. Tickets available now at www.eastsomersetrailway.com.
 Adult tickets: £15 - Child tickets: £10 - Teddy tickets £FREE
