Enjoy a Day Out With Thomas™ for some summer family fun in Hampshire

July 25, 2023

Thomas & Friends™ will be calling into The Watercress Line this summer and they want you to join in with the fun!

Day Out With Thomas™ returns from August 12 to 20, with plenty of family-friendly activities on offer to ensure you take home some fantastic memories.

You’ll have the chance to ride behind Thomas as he makes his way through the beautiful Hampshire countryside, beginning his journey at Ropley Station.

This year there are three new Rusty & Dusty outdoor entertainment shows, featuring Sir Topham Hatt, Percy, Diesel and Toad, with the exciting opportunity for a ‘meet and greet’ with Sir Topham Hatt and Sodor Station Sweepers Rusty & Dusty. And make sure you visit the new Bubble Zone for some creative play.

There are plenty of Thomas & Friends™ themed activities to enjoy in the Play Pod zone at Ropley, including story time sessions, colouring and Thomas & Friends™ giveaways for every child.

Don’t miss out on unlimited rides on the Watercress Line’s delightful miniature railway, children’s vintage fairground attractions and steam train rides to and from Ropley and Alton.

When you want to refuel, there’s a great choice of hot and cold food and refreshments at Ropley’s T-Junction and other food outlets – enjoy lunch overlooking the stunning South Downs.

The Watercress Line’s Interim CEO Rebecca Dalley said: “We can’t wait to welcome Thomas and his friends back to the Watercress Line for some summertime fun and games. We have a great programme of Thomas & Friends entertainment, and we hope you’ll join us for a full day of family fun.

All activities and rides are included in your ticket price, so get on track for an unforgettable day out. Please make sure you book your ride with Thomas when you purchase your tickets online.”
