Romsey Signal Box dates from around 1865, and is a working museum which gives an insight into the life of a railway signalman.
Visitors of all ages can get a ‘hands on’ experience by operating points, clearing signals and ringing bells to control a simulation of trains passing through Romsey.
As well as the main attraction, the site has visitor centres containing restored artefacts, photographs and information about the history of the restoration. There are also picnic and garden areas.
Open on selected Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm - please check before you visit. Admission is £2.50 per adult (accompanied children under 16 are free). Members of the Friends of Romsey Signal Box, and special pass-holders, gain free admission, and special openings can be arranged for groups.
