Discover the Winchester Chesil railway station

Railway Station

Discover our authentic ticket office and a miniature railway based on the GWR Chesil Station in Winchester.

In 1885 the GWR opened the Didcot, Newbury and Southampton line (DNSR) which initially terminated at Winchester Cheesehill (later Chesil) Station, until the line was extended to link with the Southern Railway line to Southampton. It closed in 1966.

The Woolmer steam locomotive which is displayed opposite was originally built for the Longmoor Military Railway in 1910 and is on loan from the National Railway Museum.
