Education Group Visits
to the Watercress Line
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.
Autumn Term 2019 - Visits with train travel are
available during September 2019 and
then begin again in May 2020. They are only available in term time
on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Until the end of summer 2019 we are running trains from Alresford to Medstead as work is being carried out on the far end of the line, as part of a large highway improvement scheme.
Due to the resultant changes in our timetable we are only able to book one led education group per day and are now fully booked for September.
Self Led Visits
Self led visits are still available to book on most September running days. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for current availability.
Visits without train travel are bookable throughout the autumn and spring terms, Tuesday-Friday, on non-running days except during December and January.Click here for full details of our STATION VISITS and the topics we offer.
To Book: Please contact the Education Office for availability. Your date can be reserved with a £50 deposit
Tailor made sessions: All our education sessions can be tailored to your curriculum. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
