Attendees will then be able to meet the Easter Bunny at Ropley Station and take part in themed seasonal activities, including the Easter Egg Spotter Trail, crafting Easter Ears and Easter colouring, every day from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Visitors will be able to enjoy unlimited steam train travel along the Watercress Line’s 10-mile route and stop off for photos at an Easter-themed selfie spot. All activities are included in the ticket price.

When it’s time to take a break, visitors can enjoy hot and cold food in the West Country Buffet, browse in the Alresford Shop for gifts and mementoes and children can let off steam at Ropley Station’s locomotive playground.

Watercress Line CEO Rebecca Dalley said: “Celebrate Easter with us at The Watercress Line and enjoy a fantastic day out for all the family.

“Children will get the chance to meet the Easter Bunny and take part in some wonderful Easter-themed activities, and all the family can get on board the Easter Bunny steam train for a fun ride, passing through glorious South Downs countryside and hopping on and off at our heritage stations along the way.
