The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway which runs alongside the beautiful Cotswold Hills is a delight for the many visitors who discover its nostalgic magic each year. There was a time when this line linked the historic town of Stratford-Upon-Avon with the elegant, Georgian Cheltenham Spa, taking passengers on journey through some of the loveliest countryside to be found anywhere in the world.
Today, a picturesque stretch of the line has been preserved by the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, with steam engines now a regular and treasured sight amongst the rolling Cotswold hills. This programme will take you back to the golden age of steam, travelling between the GWR’s headquarters at Toddington, to the authentically renovated Cotswold country station at Gotherington. As well as the spectacular landscape you’ll see some of the finest locomotives to be found anywhere in preservation, including wildlife artist David Shepherd’s magnificent “Black Prince”.
