Isle of Wight Steam Railway

Inspiring, surprising and award-winning … equally appealing to adults and families, your visit to The Isle of Wight Steam Railway will charm, engage and captivate, leaving you with some lasting memories of a special day out.

Step back to a bygone era when steam power was the order of the day. Thrill to the sight and sound of powerful majestic steam engines and breathe in the evocative smells of a real steam railway. Soak-up the rhythm of quiet rural stations while enjoying the friendliness of traditionally uniformed staff.

Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and discover an idyllic view of the Island’s unspoilt countryside … or hop off at one of our stations and just watch the trains go by!

Keep an eye out for a red squirrel or deer darting away from the train as you pass through ancient woodland – And watch for a solitary kestrel perched on a fence post looking for prey as the train ambles through open farmland and sweeping Downland!

The  Locomotives and Carriages have all been painstakingly restored to pristine condition and are the hallmark of our delightful railway.

Completely delicious!

We visited the George for the second time this weekend and can’t rave enough about the improvements. We were given a light and airy room with a balcony overlooking the sea, comfy bed, luxury bathroom with huge shower and super clean.

Completely delicious! We visited the George for the second time this weekend and can’t rave enough about the improvements. We were given a light and airy room with a balcony overlooking the sea, comfy bed, luxury bathroom with huge shower and super clean. The best surprise was the improvement in the food, there’s a new chef and you could really tell. I ate the smoked haddock carpaccio with pea to start, fresh, tangy and simply delicious! I ate muscles and spinach gratin, also delicious! However the truffle chips were worth visiting for alone, I’ll be back for them!
Perfect lunch setting: beautiful outdoor space on the shore & great service

I’m so glad we stopped here for lunch, as it is a truly stunning space. The most relaxing setting to rejuvenate on our day-trip, made all the more wonderful with delightful staff and scrumptious food.

We all had the roast of the day, it was delicious and well presented. The wine was very good too ! Will be returning very soon.
Can't rate this place highly enough, the food here was the nicest I've tasted in a while.
