School Bookings Update

Due to the ongoing situation we are temporarily unable to confirm educational bookings. We are working to adapt our learning experiences so that school visits can begin again safely when you are ready to come to us. For bookings for the spring and summer 2021, we will have more information as soon as we are able to confirm our running dates and timetable for the year. We hope that you will understand that the options available for some types of visit may still be limited. If you would like to make a provisional booking or rebook a cancelled visit please contact us by email to education@watercressline.co.uk

Educational Services

The education services of the Watercress Line offer  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.

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to confirm bookings for this year. We are working to add downloadable resources for you to use in the classroom.

When we are able to offer them, a visit to the line 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, January and February.

Tailor made sessions to suit your curriculum needs and self-led travel visits are available.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements education@watercressline.co.uk
