Promotional Feature: We travelled from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead as guests of the West Somerset Railway.
When I took my family to Taunton for a weekend, I looked around for other things to do while we were in the area.
I found plenty of options, and one thing I knew that we absolutely had to do was a trip on the West Somerset Railway.
The station at the Bishops Lydeard end of the line is only around 15 minutes drive from Taunton. And the round trip to Minehead on the Bristol Channel coast took us around 4 hours. So it was a perfect day trip as part of our long weekend.
Whether you love trains, have a yearning for a nostalgic journey by steam, or just love the beautiful scenery of Somerset, the West Somerset Railway is definitely one of my must-see attractions.
In this video, I take you on a journey from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead on board a beautiful steam train. Take a look and enjoy the sights and sounds of our journey
