Beer & Trains
For many years 'Beer & Buses' has been a regular event in the Island's calendar. With the event not happening in 2021, we're stepping in with the next best thing ... Beer & Trains!
We've hand-picked a great selection of real ales, there are even a few ciders for those with a sweeter tooth. You’ll have the opportunity to try local brews from Yates’, Goddards and Island Brewery alongside ales from Yorkshire, Somerset and more.
Entry to the festival is FREE; the bar opens from 11am until 6pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday. If you wish to board the steam train, usual operating day fares apply.
Our regular Blue timetable runs during the day. Why not travel to the event by bus via Wootton, or by Island Line train via Smallbrook Junction (subject to Island Line services re-starting).
The Isle of Wight Bus Museum will also be running vintage buses between Ryde and Wootton station as part of their VectisBus 100 event, celebrating 100 years of the Southern Vectis bus company.
