If you're over 60, take advantage of our special £13 TravelCard which is valid on all trains departing on the dates shown below.

 If you're not yet over 60, you are of course still very welcome to travel on these dates with tickets purchased at the usual rates.  

Relax in the beautifully restored carriages while the train travels 21 miles on a round trip through scenic countryside between Tenterden and Bodiam.  The return journey from Tenterden to Bodiam takes around 1 hour 50 minutes.

You can choose to pre-order a delicious cream tea or ploughman’s lunch to enjoy during the trip and if grandchildren come along there is a children’s munch box option too.

There's a warm welcome for visitors in the railway’s licensed restaurant at Tenterden station, where you'll find a choice of ‘daily specials’ and a children’s menu

Tenterden station is a short walk from the idyllic high street in Tenterden with its beautiful Georgian and Victorian buildings which is home to attractive boutiques, quaint antique shops and attractive cafes and restaurants.

For those who love to picnic, the railway offers an alfresco lunch option and a pre-ordered picnic hamper can be ready to collect when you arrive at Tenterden station complete with napkins, cutlery and condiments.

Well-behaved dogs on leads can also travel on the railway for £3 (£2.70 when booked online) on these and normal operating days.

There is no further reduction for groups on these dates.
