Isle of Wight Steam Railway

A visit to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway will charm, inspire and captivate. Leaving you with memories to last a lifetime. Step back to a bygone era when steam was the order of the day. See a vast collection of powerful majestic steam engines and revel in the charm of quiet rural stations with traditionally uniformed staff.

For the family and casual visitor, the Railway offers a unique and exciting day out and is one of Britain’s Heritage Railways as well as a registered educational charity, but there's also much more.

Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and discover the idyllic view of the Island’s unspoilt countryside.

Explore Train Story and uncover the lasting impact the Railway has had on our lives with interactivities and stunning displays. Journey through the Island's locomotive history as far back as 150 years.

First honoured in 1979, the Steam Railway has been the proud winner of numerous local and national awards, including Beautiful South Awards for Excellence Large Visitor Attraction, Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, National Lottery Awards Best Heritage Project plus many more.

To complete your day out there are refreshments rooms, a shop, woodland walk, picnic area, museum and children’s play area. Don’t forget to visit Haven Falconry Bird of Prey Centre, home to the Island’s largest bird of prey centre, with over 24 species.
