Steam & Heritage Diesel Train Rides 2022

11th, 18th, 20th, 21st and 25th August plus other dates in September & October!

Take a steam and heritage diesel train ride through the High Weald!
Enjoy a train ride this with a steam locomotive and a heritage diesel between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge, calling at High Rocks and Groombridge. You can sit back and relax letting the train take the strain, which is perfect on those damp rainy moments or bright sunny days!
