Gloucester Warwickshire Railway

If you are visiting the GWR steam and diesel heritage railway in the Cotswolds at Toddington over a weekend or for a few days a good place to stay for luxury bed and breakfast is the West Wing Abbey Manor just on the edge of Evesham. See http://westwingabbeymanor.blogspot.com/
From here you can explore many parts of the Cotswolds and don't forget to visit the Winchcombe Railway Museum for a really different railway heritage experience.The GWR has a station in the village. For the followers of the Turf there is also the GWR's Cheltenham Racecourse Station

In addition to a scheduled service, the GWR hosts a number of galas, enthusiasts’ events and events for all the family throughout the year, including Santa Specials, Paddington Bear, Fish and Chips specials and dining trains.
