Trains times and standard travel prices for the Watercress Line.

Due to current conditions prebooking is preferred. Standard fares give you train travel with an allocated seat whilst you travel up and down the 10 mile line. You can also visit all exhibitions and workshops. Take a ride on our miniature railway on Saturdays and special events. Special events have their own fares and timetables.
