Education Group Visits

to the Watercress Line


Coronavirus Update

If your school was booked to come to the Watercress Line during the summer term we are sorry to inform you that we will not be able to go ahead with your visit. If your school has already paid your deposit, we can hold this for a rearranged visit. Please email educationlinks@watercressline.co.ukfor all education booking enquiries.

For bookings for September onwards, we will contact you towards the end of this term when we hope to have more information regarding our midweek services and education visits on offer.

We hope that you will understand that the options available for some types of visit may still then be limited.

Should you need to cancel an education booking made for July onwards we ask you to notify us by email to educationlinks@watercressline.co.uk , however we appreciate that this is an ongoing situation and that your needs may change.


Acylic Ropley Station


An Education Visit to the Mid Hants Railway, The Watercress Line, offers the opportunity for your pupils to learn about the present day operation of our preserved railway and to investigate its past life and times. Your visit can be teamed with the experience of travelling through the Hampshire Countryside behind a restored steam locomotive during our midweek running season.


Visits with train travel  are available in term time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until the end of September. 

Station Visits without train travel are bookable during the spring and autumn terms, from Tuesday to Friday, on non-running days except during December and January.


To book an education visit:  Please contact the Education Office for availability. Your date can be reserved with a £50 deposit

Tailor made sessions: We can offer education sessions tailored to your curriculum. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
