There are some great alternatives for getting to the four GWSR main stations using public transport. If you are on holiday in the area without access to a vehicle or just fancy visiting us without having to drive, you can still have the pleasure of a steam train ride in the Cotswolds. As always, you are advised to check with the transport operator before planning your journey.
