Special Mothering Sunday railway

It's important to take Mum out for a good time on Mothering Sunday, so why not opt for something truly special and take her on the Isle of Wight steam railway?

This form of transport, as rustic as it is these days with High Speed 2 set to link London to Birmingham, still holds plenty of nostalgic pleasure for people with the old-fashioned 'choo choo' engine and polished green frontage.

Better still, the company is doing a special event for families bringing Mum along for a special treat, with every mother getting a gift upon arrival before their trip through the beautiful countryside.

While the landscape of the Isle of Wight is truly inspiring to behold no matter your means of transport, taking the steam train adds a definite rustic charm to your journey that just can't be obtained in a car.

After enjoying the trip, families will be able to partake in a lovely lunch in our Refreshment Rooms, which will of course be specially decorated for the occasion.

The event is priced at £12 per adult, £6 for children aged between five and 15 and a family of two adults and two kids can enjoy the occasion for a shared ticket of £30. Infants under four go free.

While the train will take you through the beautiful countryside, it's not going to get you across the channel. You'll need a ferry for that, so why not book one as soon as possible, just to ensure your transportation is sorted out?

The Isle of Wight is a great place to spend Mothering Sunday, with many attractions and things to do that will keep Mum interested.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801702410-ADNFCR
