Train fans will be chuffed with a Father’s Day weekend event boasting trains large and small at Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway in June.

Visitors will be treated to an array of model railways, owned by members of the New Forest Model Railway Society, as well as various working steam engines, all displayed within Exbury’s very own working railway shed.

Enthusiasts will be on hand to give hints and tips on how to build model railways at home, with layouts sized from 30ft long to those you can keep on a windowsill. For visitors wanting advice on more ambitious projects, the event organisers will also be showing off six hand-built, narrow gauge steam engines.

Location:

Engine Shed

PURCHASE MEMBERSHIP

‘We recently had some friends from London to visit and were looking for something to entertain our young children for the day. We decided to give Exbury Gardens a try and I thought it was wonderful. We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the food was far superior to other local attractions so compliments to the chef. Walking through the gardens was beautiful with lots of little pathways to explore. I have lived in the Romsey area for many years and always thought Exbury was a little out of the way but it only took me 20 minutes from the motorway. We will definitely be a regular visitor from now on.’
