The Heart of Wessex Line is a scenic railway that runs from Bristol to Weymouth. A long desired year round Sunday service from Bristol to Weymouth will commence on December 12th 2016.

Two services will depart from Bristol Temple Meads at 8.23am and 9.25am. Historically these only ran in summer so it’s great news that this is happening and opens up more tourism opportunities, as well as employment and social need.

As we know services like these are only kept if they are well used so please spread the word as there will be many potential benefits. It will also help the case for Sunday services in the other direction.
