Now in its 46th year, the Island Steam Show is back for another action-packed year. It's the bank holiday event on the Island with bundles of fun and explosive acts in the main arena.
Enjoy a fabulous collection of vintage transport, traditional fairground, live entertainment, plus steam trains running on the line.
Get set to cheer and be amazed by amazing entertainment, head to the comedy and entertainment stage for amusing and interesting acts before wandering down to the woodland for live music in the woods.
Be amazed by working traction engines, farm vehicles, military vehicles and more as you take in the site all before taking a ride aboard one of our vintage steam trains.
Little ones will be kept busy with traditional games such as coconut shys and hook the duck and a ride on the steam powered gallopers will be a treat for big and little kids.
Refuel at one of the onsite refreshments kiosks or cool down with an ice cream, there's even a real ale bar to keep dad happy.
Steam trains are running throughout the day from 10.15am until 5pm. Book online to reserve your exclusive compartment on the train for you and your family - you'll even save money too by booking online. Why not travel to the event by train, making use of our connection with Island Line at Smallbrook Junction, or the Island's bus network at Wootton.
Step back to a bygone era when steam power was the order of the day. Thrill to the sight and sound of powerful majestic steam engines and breathe in the evocative smells of a real steam railway. Soak-up the rhythm of quiet rural stations while enjoying the friendliness of traditionally uniformed staff.
Settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and discover an idyllic view of the Island's unspoilt countryside ... or hop off at one of our stations and just watch the trains go by. Keep an eye out for a red squirrel or deer darting away from the train as you pass through ancient woodland.
Our Locomotives and Carriages have all been painstakingly restored to pristine condition and are the hallmark of our delightful railway. Our oldest locomotive was built in 1876 and carriages date back to 1864.
Explore our Train Story Discovery Centre, our fabulous indoor museum which brings the story of the Island's railway's to life. Discover our amazing collection that spans from the opening of the line from Ryde to Shanklin in 1864 to the Underground trains that ran on the line until January 2021.
