Heart of England Rail Rover - Tuesday

The Longest Platform Station in the UK - Home Station : Worcester Shrub Hill

A relax day, visiting Gloucester, to do a bit of shopping. Gloucester may be only 17 miles by road from my starting station at Ledbury, but it is a 43 miles by train. Gloucester Station has the longest platform in the UK, as mention in the Guiness World of Records. It is about a mile long! However, each platform is split into 2 or 3 platform number.
