Cream Teas

24th October

Cream Teas on the train!
Travel on the 14:45 service from Tunbridge Wells West to Eridge on selected Green timetable days of the year and watch the glorious High Weald countryside go by from the comfort of our beautifully decorated Bar Car 'Kate' whilst enjoying a wonderful Cream Tea.

Arrive at Tunbridge Wells West for 14:30 and take a look inside our Victorian Engine Shed. Board the train shortly before departure and travel to Eridge hauled by a heritage diesel, your Cream Tea being served upon departure from Tunbridge Wells. Upon arrival at Eridge you'll have the opportunity to alight briefly and see our Steam Locomotive. Rejoin the train ready for the Steam Locomotive to haul you back up the hill to Tunbridge Wells, arriving back there for approximately 15:50. What a fabulous way to spend and afternoon!

Tickets are valid for travel all day which means you can arrive and travel on trains prior to your Cream Tea on the 14:45 from Tunbridge Wells West. If you are travelling on our trains or visiting other locations along the line during the day please make sure you arrive back at Tunbridge Wells West in time to board for the Cream Tea service, we can't wait for latecomers!
