Trains to Bridgwater

Trains first came to Bridgwater in 1841 with the opening of the initial section of the Bristol to Exeter Railway. The station was designed in the classical style by none other than the celebrated engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. His buildings survive to this day and are Grade II* listed. As you travel through, look out for the distinctive canopies and multi-paned windows among many other original features both inside and out. The centre of Bridgwater is about 15 minutes' walk from the station. On the way, you'll cross the River Parrett and pass a range of historic buildings that hark back to the town's heyday as a port town, especially along West Quay. In November each year, the town is thronged with visitors for the famous Bridgwater Carnival, one of the country's largest illuminated processions with over 100 lit-up themed carts, followed by a firework display in the town centre.
