Dunster Castle Express
Full steam ahead to 1,000 years of history
Take a steam train ride to 1,000 years of history at Dunster Castle and arrive in style on the West Somerset Railway.
How better to visit magnificent Dunster Castle than by a leisurely ride through the beautiful West Somerset countryside, hauled by a vintage steam engine?
Every Wednesday and Saturday from April to the start of November the Dunster Castle Express will leave Bishops
Lydeard station at 10.25am. Alighting at Dunster station the special coach connection will take you to
Dunster Castle and return you back in time for your return train arriving at Bishops Lydeard at 5.19pm.
Your ticket includes the return train journey to and from Dunster station, with the special coach transfer from
Dunster station to Dunster Castle and full admission into Dunster Castle and Gardens.
To complete your experience, why not order a delicious picnic that will be ready and waiting for you at the Castle when you arrive. There are five menus to choose from, including vegetarian and gluten-free options; prices start
from £16 for two people.
Picnics need to be ordered online at least seven days before your outing.
