Treat the family to an unforgettable journey

Spend a half day with your family on the rails of the heritage East Somerset Railway and discover the history of the steam trains. This ticket package, brought to you by Virgin Experience Days, gives you unlimited travel through the picturesque countryside aboard the East Somerset Railway.

The East Somerset Railway has been transporting steam train fans up and down the track, pulled by a lovingly restored steam locomotive since 1973  allowing steam lovers young and old to experience what rail travel was like 50 years ago. From Cranmore Station, with its museum and 100-year-old signal box, to Mendip Vale and the sight of trains ‘running around’, there are four stations and 2.5 miles of history to dive into, and you can experience it ALL as your ticket allows unlimited travel.

Boundless members save an extra 20% on full-price Virgin Experience Days*. So you can book a family steam train trip on the East Somerset Railway for just £25.60 – that’s a £6.40 saving.
