All aboard …


… for an experience to remember.

With a choice of travel accommodation – including carriages similar to those made famous by literature’s most famous boy wizard – we are a preserved steam railway with an eclectic collection of historic steam and diesel services.
We have a model railway, stories from our proud Guinness Hop Picking history and other educational exhibits popular with our younger visitors.

The Colonel Stephens Railway museum at Tenterden Town is free entry and tells the fascinating story of our founder, who built our railway as the first of 23 under the Light Railways Act of 1896.

With an abundance of wildlife alongside the ten and a half miles of historic railway and on board activities to learn more about the beautiful Rother Valley, why not join us for an experience you’ll all remember for the right reasons! With a varied events programme, on board dining options, gift shops and free customer parking at Tenterden Town Station there is so much to enjoy whether you are aged 3 or 93!

Facilities have been carefully designed with disabled, elderly and less mobile visitors in mind. For pre-booked groups coach parking is available at Tenterden Town Station with complimentary refreshments for Coach Drivers!

For those wishing to extend their visit whilst at Tenterden Town the High Street is a short walk away and boasts an abundance of inde-pendent shops, pubs and eateries and a delightful children’s play-ground at the idyllic recreation ground. The Tenterden Town Museum is situated close to the station and has many fascinating exhibits.
