The Watercress Line

Let off steam and travel by lovingly restored steam trains through 10 miles of beautiful Hampshire countryside. It’s the perfect way to unwind and witness the sights, sounds, smells and magic of steam travel from a bygone age.

You can either join the line at the picturesque Georgian town of Alresford, or the bustling market town of Alton. On your journey you can stop at Ropley and Medstead & Four Marks stations and marvel at their preserved history.

Please visit the website for up-to-date information on train timetables and services.

Special events throughout the year include Day out with Thomas, 30’s and 40’s weekend, spectacular Steam Galas, Wizard Week, Steam Illuminations and much, much more – please see the Watercress Line website for further details.
