Watercress Line

Due to the COVID-19 emergency the Watercress Line Mid Hants Railway is temporarily closed to the public. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is our most important consideration. You will know that the Watercress Line relies on ticket revenue to cover its operational costs, which currently work out more than £75,000 a month. Without money coming in from running services, the railway is eating into its financial reserves to survive. If you can help, please click on the Virgin Money Giving link below which allows you to donate a single amount or pay monthly if you're able to. You can also text WATERCRESS to 70085 to donate £10, texts cost £10 plus one standard rate message. Thank you for continuing to support us during this unprecedented situation. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Watercress Line soon.

NEW! FREE standard travel for children aged 4 and under

Children aged four and under will be able to travel for FREE on the Watercress Line’s standard service.

The change in ticket price is part of the Watercress Line’s aim to encourage enthusiasm and love for heritage railway at an early age. We would like to see young children exploring the Watercress Line and learning more about its wonderful railway story. We hope that by making our standard travel free for those aged four and under, we can secure even more ‘little engineers’ for the future.
