Fodor's Review

Alresford, 8 miles northeast of Winchester by A31 and B3046, is the starting point of the Watercress Line, a 10-mile-long railroad reserved for steam locomotives that run to Alton. The line (named for the area's watercress beds) travels on a scenic route, taking in the highest station in southern England and locomotive restoration workshops. Alresford, crossed by the River Alre, has some antiques shops and Georgian houses.
