  • Day 2: Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway and Cotswolds

    The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham, which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.

    It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway, through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond. Sit back, relax and enjoy light refreshments on our journey.

    We will then enjoy free time in Broadway, which remains today as it has for centuries with the picturesque rolling hills overlooking the ancient honey-coloured period buildings.
