Yesterday I went on the Mid Hants Railway, Watercress Line. It was a beautiful day and a lovely day trip from London. If you’ve got kids to entertain this half term week, it’s accessible by train. I highly recommend it.

Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line
It’s Halloween all half term week at the Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line…
From London Waterloo it’s an hour ride to Alton for less than a tenner. From there you can walk over the bridge to platform three where one of the many volunteers who keep the Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line alive will be.
There will be a magic shows and dressing up (adults allowed too) and a bring-your-own pumpkin competition. There’s a witches lair and miniature ghost train… a lucky dip, spell writing and colouring-in competitions as well as the opportunity to hold an owl!
