Free Behind the Scenes Tours

Home » Events at The Watercress Line

15th and 16th September 2018 

Support Heritage Open Days we will be running FREE Behind the Scenes tours of our workshops at Ropley.

Come and explore behind the scenes at our engineering hub at Ropley. Find out what it takes to restore and maintain steam locomotives, and get up close to these magnificent engines in our workshops.

Tour Times: 11.30, 12.30, 1.30, 2.30 & 3.20

There are a few stairs inside the workshops but the tour can be changed to accommodate anyone in a wheelchair etc. 
The yard surface is uneven in places, we try to pick the most level path but this may not always be possible due to movements in this area.
