New ticket deal saves passengers almost 20% on local attraction

Wednesday 15th June 2016

GWR invite you to a special charter service on Sunday 19 June 2016 for the launch of the West Somerset Away Day ticket.

Running from Taunton to Minehead and return, you will get the chance to sample the longest preserved line in England from one of our newly refurbished Class 150 trains.

The trip will include:

  • A launch party on arrival at Minehead with special guests in attendance
  • A visit to the start of the former Taunton to Barnstaple branch at Norton Fitzwarren, on the return journey – a first for a GWR Class 150
  • An on-board trolley service with proceeds going to charity

The service will depart from Taunton (1115), calling at Bishops Lydeard at 1135 before arriving at Minehead at 1255 for a special launch party. The return service will depart from Minehead at 1515, arriving at Bishops Lydeard at 1630 and Taunton at 1705.

Etickets for the special charter service are  £25.99 and can be purchased here.
