A visit to the Award-Winning Isle of Wight Steam Railway is equally appealing to adults and families, coach parties and groups,! The sight of powerful majestic steam engines, the charm of quiet rural stations, and the friendliness of traditionally uniformed staff, will leave your guests with some enduring memories of a special day out.

Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages for a 10-mile ride behind a vintage steam locomotive and enjoy a unique view of some of the Island’s unspoilt countryside. Or hop off at one of our stations and just enjoy watching the trains go by.

Across the year we stage a number of special events. From 'The 1940s Experience' to our 'Pride & Joy' Weekend, there are also vehicle rallies, a Jazz Festival, 1960s event, Wine and Real Ale Festivals, a Steam and Country Show, and our famous Santa Specials!

To complete your day out, the fully licensed Refreshment Rooms are ideal for Elevenses, Lunch and Afternoon Tea! There’s also a Gift Shop, children’s play area, Woodland Walk and museum - plus lots of space for picnics, games or just relaxing.
