Somerset and Dorset Railway Museum: Contains relics from the former Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway which ran from Bath to Bournemouth with branchlines to Highbridge, Burnham on Sea, Wells and Bridgwater. Explore the mass of exhibits, ponder on the old station names and soak up the evocative atmosphere.

Relics to be seen are station nameboards, lamps, tools, signalling equipment, tickets, photographs, handbills, rolling stock and steam locomotives.
