Families can come and meet a famous character at the Severn Valley Railway (SVR) this February half-term. 

Visitors can take a train on the heritage railway to see the Gruffalo who will be making an appearance at The Engine House in Highley from Tuesday, February 13 to Thursday, February 15. 

Visitor engagement manager, Lewis Maddox, said: "We are excited to have the Gruffalo visiting The Engine House Highley.

"Families will be able to travel in style by heritage train to Highley and meet their favourite character whilst creating memories together. Don't forget to bring your camera." 

Family tickets can be purchased online with travel either from Kidderminster or Bridgnorth and include a timed entry ticket to meet the Gruffalo at The Engine House. 

There is also an outdoor play area for children at The Engine House with opportunities to sort the mail in the travelling post office.
