The Severn Valley Railway in partnership with Hay Wines are delighted to welcome you aboard The Wine Train!
Tickets available for £50pp.
Join us for a relaxing Summer's day on the Railway! This is a truly unique experience; travel through the spectacular Severn Valley in our 1936-built luxurious first class carriage (once hauled by the Flying Scotsman), whilst sipping a selection of wines and enjoying our informative, yet informal, overview of the drinks you are tasting by professional staff. A journey fit for any wine lover.
