The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is a living, working museum with a heritage railway passing through 5.5 miles of unspoilt countryside.

The visitor can expect to step back in time to a bygone age. The adjacent, modern Train Story exhibition presents a timeline of the era of steam with lots of interpretative exhibits and hands-on activities.

School visits are well catered for on the largest site at Havenstreet, with a seperate formal museum, an interactive museum, working signal box, tours of the restoration workshops, play and picnic areas and of course the amazing steam train ride. A classroom is available with video presentation and on-site catering is possible.
