Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Isle of Wight Attraction
Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Spending time on the Isle of Wight is all about resting, unwinding and taking things at a more relaxed pace. With no need to rush around, why not travel in style on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway? Lovingly restored Victorian carriages pulled by vintage locomotives run between Wootton and Smallbrook Junction all through the summer.
Family Day Out
A visit to the Steam Railway on the Isle of Wight is a great day out for all the family. Step back in time to an era when steam was the only way to travel, and meet one of the traditionally uniformed staff on hand.
Both the carriages and the locomotives pulling them have a long history – with the oldest carriage still running having been built in 1864, and the oldest locomotive (after a lot of restoration of course) originally built in 1876.
Isle of Wight Steam Railway Museum
With such a long and fascinating history, the steam railway wouldn’t be complete without its very own museum to ensure that visitors get the most out of their day. It is home to the all the things that make a railway run – from signalling equipment and old station signs to tickets and loco nameplates.
You can even visit the Carriage and Wagon Workshop to see how these working historical artefacts are kept in prime condition.
Plenty to Do
Apart from taking a trip in one of the carriages, visiting the museum and seeing how much work goes in to looking after the railway; you can also take some time to relax in the Railway Refreshment rooms. Whether it’s a quick snack or a complete meal, there’s plenty of choice available.
Before you go, nip into the gift shop to make sure you have something to remember an unforgettable day at the Steam Railway.
