The Kent & East Sussex Railway is one of the country's finest examples of a rural light railway. The line gently wends its way from Tenterden for ten and a half miles, through the un-spoilt countryside of the Rother Valley, to terminate in the shadow of the magnificent National Trust castle at Bodiam. Tenterden and Northiam are situated on the A28 between Ashford and Hastings. Visitors are encouraged to start their day at Tenterden station and make use of the spacious free car park.
The railway’s facilities have been carefully designed with disabled, elderly and less mobile visitors in mind. There are parking spaces for Blue Badge holders next to the platform at Tenterden Town and Northiam stations, and accessible toilets at Tenterden, Northiam and Bodiam stations. The railway is proud to boast a specially designed coach for wheelchair users called ‘Petros’ which is fitted with ramped access, wide aisles, an accessible toilet and moveable seating. There is full wheelchair access to the shop and restaurant at Tenterden Town and the Colonel Stephens Railway Museum has level access with 42”aisles.
