IOW Steam Railway Summer Steam Show and Real Ale Festival, Ryde & Haven Street, Hampshire

27 August 2011: IOW Steam Railway Summer Steam Show and Real Ale Festival

A day trip to the Isle Of Wight Steam Railway for their Summer Steam Show and Real Ale Festival. A day for transport and beer fans alike.

*** I have set this event up again for those who wish to go, but due to work commitments I will not be going this year.****

An outing for the August Bank Holiday weekend, but as a day trip only, due to the severe lack of accomodation available on the Island August Bank Holiday Weekend.

A "tube" journey with a difference, followed by a trip on the Isle Of Wight Steam Railway to their Summer Steam Show and Real Ale Festival. A day for transport and beer fans alike.

As this is the August bank Holiday weekend, accomodation on the Island is extrememly limited.

Admission to the Show, Beer Festival and unlimited travel on the IOW steam railway is £13. However an Islandliner ticket can be purchase from the guard at Ryde on the Island Line train at Ryde Pier Head for £12 which gives unlimited travel all day on both railways, and admission to the Show and Beer Festival.


The Isle of Wight Steam Railway presents August Bank Holiday Beer Festival. Taking place in a special marquee at Havenstreet Station, the festival will be open on all four days of the holiday weekend from 11am to 7.30pm.
