The perfect day out with the kids in Hampshire
Eastleigh Lakeside Steam Railway is a popular attraction near to Southampton, perfect for a day out with the kids at the weekend or during school holidays. Our steam trains run from the main station at Eastleigh Parkway, with the entire trip totalling 15-20 minutes.
We do have a small stock of pocket money items and ice creams on sale at our outdoor ticket desk.
We believe we have the largest collection of Miniature locomotives on a commercial railway, with a total of 24 in the collection; 21 being steam powered and most of them are in steam on gala days.
Please note that Dogs are more than welcome at the railway. They are allowed everywhere, including the cafe. Dogs travel free on the trains.
