Pick up your golden ticket and experience the golden age of steam travel at Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line.
Get up close with the locomotives at this historic railway and treat your family to a day out on a steam train. Make sure to stop off at Alresford’s charming Georgian town centre with lots of great independent shops, a picturesque riverside walk and local landmarks. Top tip: A trip to Hinton Ampner, a nearby National Trust property is a must.
Walk in Harry Potter’s footsteps over the iron footbridge where he received his ticket for the Hogwarts Express, or visit the Loco Yard where you can look behind the scenes in the impressive engineering workshops and get up close to the locomotives.

LOVED Day Out With Thomas
Written by Anonymous . 21.04.16
What a fun day we had with our two little ones (age 2 and 4). There were tea-cup rides, rides on Thomas, bouncy slide, Thomas train sets to play with... all included in the price. The events the Watercress Line put on are fab for the family - kids will love it! They do two Thomas events in the year (Summer and Easter) and a Wizard Weekend too (October). Totally recommend it! :)
