Steam Train Rides in September & October!

19th, 20th, 26th & 27th September, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 24th & 25th October 2020

We're returning our standard train timetable back to Eridge from 19th September!

Our standard Green timetable is back from 19th September with Steam and Heritage Diesel trains in action and you can travel to Eridge boarding or alighting at Tunbridge Wells West, Groombridge or Eridge (High Rocks station is still closed) at our standard travel fares for Unlimited Travel on any train!

If you fancy a train ride in comfort with your close family then we are still able to offer a Compartment of up to 6 persons for just £50 for one return trip from Tunbridge Wells West on any train that day. One journey will take around 1hr 15mins with a short break at Eridge before returning back up the line to Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Pre-booking is still necessary so that we can control the number of people visiting on any one day, there MIGHT very limited capacity for those just popping in that would like a train ride but if you do not pre-book we can't guarantee you will be able to travel or get a seat on board the train. We strongly recommend pre-booking.

We've installed screens into our open carriages which means that people can now sit back to back increasing our capacity more or less back to what it used to be pre-COVID. We are therefore able to open up bookings to customers for unlimited travel whilst still having enough space on board to maintain social distancing. Passengers will not have a specific seat unless you book into a compartment but you will have the option to sit in other locations around the train.

Routine cleaning will be taking place of tables and high touch points between and during journey's. Hand sanitisation points and hand washing facilities are provided around the railway for you to use along with the ability to accept contactless payment.

Passengers will need to remain seated during the journey and if you are travelling anywhere other than a compartment you will be required to wear a face covering, this requirement also extends to being worn on our stations and in our buildings. 

Trains will depart from Tunbridge Wells West at 10:30, 11:55, 13:25, 14:45 and 16:15. 
Trains will depart from Eridge at: 11:15, 12:35, 14:05, 15:25 and 16:55. 

Standard travel fares:

You will be required to wear a face covering when on our stations, buildings, sat in an Open Carriage or walking throughout the train, these can be removed when inside a compartment.

How to book:
If you would like to travel on any train that day you must click on the 10:00 time option below which says "Valid for visiting and Unlimited Travel from 10:00 until 17:00 at anytime/any train." This option will let you choose either Adult £12, Child £6, Senior £11 or Family £30. It will not allow you to choose the Compartment for 6 persons. 

If you would like to book a specific compartment then please select a departure time of either 10:30, 11:55, 13:25, 14:45 and 16:15. You will have exclusive use of this compartment for one return trip but can travel earlier or later in the day if you wish, you will however not be guaranteed the same compartment or seats. You may be required to stand for part of the journey to ensure social distancing can be maintained with other passengers. 

If you select a train time other than 10:00 you will not be able to book the Adult £12, Child £6, Senior £11 or Family £30 tickets, they will display as 'NOT AVAILABLE' this is because you must select 10:00 only to have the option of the Adult £12, Child £6, Senior £11 or Family £30 tickets.
