About the experience

Are you looking for a unique and affordable railway experience for you and a friend? Look no further than the Whistlestop Cream Tea & Steam Train Ride! This unbeatable offer provides plenty to see and do at a delightful heritage railway near Shepton Mallet in Somerset. By purchasing this East Somerset railway experience, you can also help safeguard this lovely little part of British railway history. You'll start your adventure with introductions to the enthusiastic staff and volunteers. Each of you will receive an all-day Rover ticket valid for all services on the line, which runs from Cranmore Station to Mendip Vale. With your Rover tickets, you can enjoy all-day steam train rides and take in the stunning Somerset countryside. But that's not all - the experience also includes a cream tea for two at the Whistlestop Cafe. Located at the main station, it's the ideal spot for a break while observing the comings and goings outside. Your voucher entitles you to two scones each, served with clotted cream, jam, and butter, and your choice of drink from tea or coffee. After your delicious cream tea, why not take a little stroll? You can visit the East Somerset model shop, explore the engine shed (where all the restoration work takes place), discover the David Shepherd Discovery Centre, and check out the miniature railway too. There's even a small museum in the station's waiting room. The founder of the East Somerset Railway, David Shepherd, invested in Cranmore in 1971, and the first passenger service on the Somerset heritage railway began in late 1973. By buying this East Somerset railway experience, you'll be contributing to the preservation of this wonderful little part of British railway history.
