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.
