School Bookings Update

Due to the ongoing situation we are temporarily unable to take new education bookings.

For bookings for the spring and summer 2021, we hope to have more information before the end of term regarding our education 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 or rearranged a visit please notify us by email to educationlinks@watercressline.co.uk however we appreciate that this is an ongoing situation and that your needs may change at short notice.


Educational services

An education visit to 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 with sessions tailored to the specifics of your curriculum.

Your visit can be teamed with the experience of travelling through the Hampshire countryside behind a restored steam locomotive during our midweek running season. 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.

Tailor made sessions to suit your curriculum needs and self-led visits are available. Please contact us to discuss your requirements
