Disabled Access

Due to the age of our heritage carriages we have adapted a special carriage for mobility impaired visitors via ramp access with seating areas for carers. For more information on Disabled Access please Click Here

Dogs & Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are allowed to accompany their owner in all areas of the site including the restaurant and dining carriages, please state that an assistance dog will be present when booking for one of our dining trains

The East Somerset Railway recognises that dogs are an important part of family life for many people and that they do not wish their pet to miss out on a day out. We ask that dogs do not travel on seats and are kept on a lead at all times. Dogs are not allowed in our restaurant or in dining carriages.

Water bowls for dogs are available at the bottom of the main entrance steps and on the platform.
