The scenic railway from Bristol to Weymouth


The Heart of Wessex Line links cities, market towns, countryside and coast via a scenic 87 mile route. Its twenty stations all offer opportunities for adventures and discoveries whether you are in the mood for walking through lovely countryside, hunting down that perfect little black dress, exploring the rich history and culture of the region, taking your children on a special day out or sampling some of the best local food and ales to be found anywhere in the country.

Our route map on the right links you to a brief guide to each of our destinations with ideas for your visit, plus links to further information to help and inspire you. Other pages in this section will focus on particular areas of interest, including a collection of recent editions of our regular Line Guide that puts a special focus on different parts of our line three times a year.
