Welcome to the Bath Railway Society website.

The Bath Railway Society was founded at The Midland Hotel in 1957, provides an excellent programme of talks on railway subjects for all those having an interest in railways; past, present and future.

From September 2014 the society will hold its  monthly meetings (except for July and August) in the Church Hall of St Mary's Church, Darlington Street,  Bathwick, situated at the bottom of Bathwick Hill with the junction of Pulteney Road, Bath.

In addition to our regular meetings we hold occasional Society visits to sites of railway interest,a tradition which goes back to Society outings on the former Somerset & Dorset Railway in 1959.

Our membership is a diverse group (in terms of age and gender) and you will be made most welcome in joining us either as a new member or visitor.


Annual membership subscription - £18.00

(If joining after 1st January - £9.00)

Visitors - £2.50 per meeting.

Further details can be found on the pages of this website
