Watercress Steam Railway

Welcome to the Mid Hants Railway 'Watercress Line', located about 7 miles from the historic city of Winchester.

Let the train take the strain as you sit back, relax, and watch mile after mile of beautiful Hampshire countryside pass you by. The soothing sounds of the steam engine and the beat of the exhaust can be heard over the clickety clack of the train passing over the rails; there really is nothing quite like the sight, sound and smell of a steam train!

Our tickets give you all day unlimited travel, enabling you to enjoy this sedate pace of life watching the trains go by at one of our peaceful and picturesque stations full of period charm. It also allows you to take a short meander into the picturesque market towns of Alresford and Alton all on one ticket.

We are open every weekend from mid February through until the end of October and we also run midweek from May until September. The Watercress Line runs steam and heritage diesel locomotives throughout the year.

Our West Country Buffet is open every day except Monday for snacks, drinks, hot meals (until 2pm) and take-away cream teas; the perfect accompaniment to a ride on the train!

The railway looks spectacular through every season, from the delightful bluebells in spring, golden summer fields, the glorious colours of autumn and magical frosts in winter. From the pretty Georgian town of New Alresford with its bustling station through to the restful open spaces and famous topiary at Ropley, home to our Loco Sheds; then up the steep climb to the picturesque country station at Medstead & Four Marks, the highest station in the South of England, and then down into the busy market town of Alton - each station has a distinct character that is a delight to explore.
