Avon Valley Railway (AVR) Reviews
We did this for our sons Christmas Santa expletive and he loved it. He had a toy, a chocolate bar and drink and we all thoroughly enjoyed the train ride. So worth it. more »
Whilst in the area we decided to have a festive seasonal trip on a wonderful steam train, always fascinating to watch and experience this type of train. Good restaurant and facilities for everyone... more »
It is great to see how Avon Valley Railway has evolved since I was young in the 80s to the living and bustling place that it now is. It is also nice to see the character of the many volunteers who have helped over the years. Very friendly staff/volunteers and good facilities. Will of course be back :)
Took Mum here for lunch - she loves the bubble and squeak that comes with bacon and eggs. And eating it in a railway carriage is added fun. Have been before and really enjoyed the short steam train rides.
