About Fawley Hill

A Brief Look At the estate

Fawley Hill is the private estate of the late Sir William McAlpine and Lady McAlpine in the heart of the English countryside. Once described by Country Life magazine as ‘the most bonkers estate in Britain’, it is home to a restored Victorian railway station, the steepest standard gauge railway track in the world, a railway museum and over 20 animal species.

Fawley Hill hosts regular steam rallies and events and is also available for weddings and private hire (corporate events, conferences, film & TV).
