The Dinosaur Express!

Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th June

Dinosaurs Weekend!
The dinosaurs, which roamed the earth over 66 million years ago are back, and they’re coming to the Spa Valley Railway this year with the help of Dinosaur Experiences!

With the help of their rangers, you can get up close and interact with a selection of life-like dinosaurs from giant to tiny at Tunbridge Wells West on the train as the dinosaurs mix with the steam and heritage diesels on board our 1960s carriages. A variety of dinosaurs, large and small will be appearing throughout the day between 10:00 and 16:30.

We'll be operating both steam and heritage diesel trains to our Green timetable through the High Weald. Did dinosaurs roam through the Weald all those years and years ago?

Dinosaur Appearances
Dinosaur appearances are around 20-minutes long and they’ll appear at Tunbridge Wells West and the baby dinosaurs will appear on the train!

Tickets are valid to travel on the trains all day and cost just:
