They’re a thoughtful bunch at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, and they’re running Hangover Specials on New Year’s Day to help visitors see in the new year with a graceful journey through the countryside. If you wake up and don’t feel up to anything too taxing on New Year’s Day you’ll be welcome aboard the steam train for a relaxing experience the whole family can enjoy.
The scenery looks especially beautiful on a quiet winter’s day, and enjoying the sight of it gliding by as you sink back in your seat is the perfect way to spend the first day of the year. If you fancy a wander and some fresh air hop off at Ashey or Wootton and take in some of the countryside before completing your journey.
Visitors are welcome to visit the carriage and wagon workshop and the Train Story Discovery Centre too, and as these are indoor attractions they’re ideal if you want to stay warm and toasty during your trip. The attraction’s packed with facts and information about the steam trains and their long history on the Isle of Wight.
