steam in bristol

A real treat in Bristol, and perhaps not as publicised as it should be, is the Bristol Harbour Railway. This runs from the SS Great Britain, along the harbourside for about 400 metres, then reverses and runs alongside the river to the Create Centre.

This is an unusual railway with some street running and open carriages for passengers which gives a much more intimate ride than your average steam railway. It is also very accessible for the same reasons.

It's not open every weekend, but check the timetable and if it is running please take a trip - you won't regret it!
