What is there to do during your visit?

The railway line wends its way through the Rother Valley and is never too far away from the local waterways. This is a superb time of year to learn more about the diversity of the birds and animals surrounding us!

All the family can enjoy our free bird-themed on-board activities to complete during the journey, taking advantage of the numerous opportunities to see the great variety of birds along the railway.

Why not become a "Nature detective" see what birds you can spot as you journey along the line? Don't forget to collect your free sticker kids!

The journey between Tenterden and Bodiam Stations takes around 50 minutes each way. Your ticket is valid for travel on any train, so why not break your journey at Bodiam & visit the National Trust Castle - a short walk from the station. Don't miss the last train back though! If you're not a National Trust member, show your train ticket to receive a discount on admission to the castle

Discounted tickets are available to purchase online until midnight on the day preceding your visit. Other ticket types are available to purchase by telephone and, subject to availability, in person at the Booking Office up to the time of departure. Well behaved dogs now travel free at the K&ESR - all we ask is that they are not permitted to sit on the seats.

Pre-book online and collect your tickets from the Booking Office on arrival - simply quote the Booking Reference included in your confirmation email.
