We are proud to be wheelchair friendly, and the majority of our trains are equipped with ramps to permit ease of access for visitors with reduced mobility. Buggies, prams, bicycles and dogs are all welcome, and carried free of charge! Note that some of the vintage carriages are not accessible, if these facilities are essential to you, please do check before travelling.

Tickets and Events

Tickets may be purchased online book as early as possible as Special Events can be extremely popular and often completely sell out in advance!

Our Special visitors in the past have included Thomas and Friends, Peppa Pig, Bing and Flop, and Paddington Bear. These events are fantastic for a fun adventure with the family, in addition to this our ever popular Fish and Chip Luncheons and other Dining events are available. 

In December with the help of Santa we run our joyful special Christmas trains which start from Eridge station. 

On Green/Yellow/Purple operating days, a whole-line ticket allows unlimited travel and breaks of journey on the day of issue.

Further attractions used to include driver experience days but we have had to put these on hold for now. We will aim to restart this amazing offer in the future. This gives you the chance to drive one of our full sized steam engines from Tunbridge Wells to Groombridge. This service is only available on selected dates and has to be pre booked.
