The times above are subject to change depending on weather, special events, gardening projects, demand and weather. At busier times, usually during May and at the weekends, it is likely that Exbury Steam Railway will run every 30 minutes, between 11am-3pm. Please check at the Visitor Entrance for the timetable on the date of your visit.
Our steam railway now stops at Dragonfly Halt and Exbury North stations, allowing passengers to alight and visit the northernmost section of the gardens (including the new Dragonfly Pond). Passengers can ride a later train back to Exbury Central station but please note that we cannot guarantee that there will be spaces available.
Admission onto the steam train is only permitted by visitors who have purchased admission to the gardens and paid for a railway ticket, costing £5.50 per person.
In exceptional circumstances, such as hot or dry weather, Exbury Gardens may use a diesel engine instead of a steam locomotive to reduce any risk of fire.
While Exbury Gardens Ltd have taken all reasonable care to follow government COVID-19 safety guidelines, visitors enter at their own risk. Click here for a comprehensive list of the safety measures we've implemented.
