IWSR Awarded Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence 2015

Isle of Wight Steam Railway announced as Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2015 Winner..

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is frequently acknowledged as one of the country’s leading heritage railways. In addition to preserving the history of railways on the Island, many of their unique collection of pristine wooden bodied carriages that date back to 1864 are noted to be of national importance.  

Over recent years much work has gone into improving the visitor experience and this received a huge boost in April 2014 when the £1.2million Train Story Discovery Centre was opened at the Havenstreet station. Assisted by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £970,000, this new facility details the history of railways on the Island through a range of interactive and educational activities and displays.

The Railway constantly receives excellent feedback and ratings from visitors through the national Trip Advisor visitor attraction critique website. This has now been rewarded as the Railway is announced as - Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2015 Winner.

Peter Vail, General Manager said:
“This is a great reward for our volunteers and staff who have worked so hard on all aspects of our visitor’s experience. Our priority is on a friendly greeting and a focus on making sure every attention to detail is just right. All feedback is important to us and the constant stream of good reviews through Trip Advisor makes it all so worthwhile and rewarding.”
