Things to do in Exmoor: West Somerset Railway

On a sunny spring Sunday morning what better is there to do than queue in an old fashioned ticket hall and purchase ‘proper’ tickets for a ride on a steam train?

We travelled in a 1950s carriage pulled by the Black Prince steam locomotive engine from Minehead to Blue Anchor were we alighted and ate an elevenses of victoria sandwich* and cups of tea from a flask in the quiet sunshine of the Up Platform before walking back along the beach all the way into Minehead.
