Plan your trip

Hagley Station

Explore the historic station that dates back to 1884. The Grade II footbridge has been used by Hornby for a 'OO' gauge model.

Take time to explore the poster boards along the platforms, showcasing local art society members' artwork.

Blakedown

The local community saved this historic signal box and it is now used as a community hub. You can see the hub on the right as you leave the station going south.

Kidderminster

Extend your day out on the railway with a trip along the Severn Valley Railway, located across the station forecourt. Built in late Victorian style and based on the former GWR station at Ross-on-Wye, the station was opened in 1984.

Don't miss a visit to the Museum of Carpets to learn about the area's facinating history of carpet weaving.

Leaving Kidderminster heading south on the train, the extensive locomotive and carriage facilities of the Severn Valley Railway can be seen to the right before the line crosses the impressive 23m high Hoobrook Viaduct built from 7 million blue bricks in 1884-85.

Hartlebury

As you leave the train in Hartlebury, stop for a drink or bite to eat at the former station building, now home to The Tap House.

Explore further and visit the Grade I listed Hartlebury Castle, home of the Bishops of Worcester for over 1000 years.
