This half term stay warm and dry whilst keeping the children entertained on a real steam train! Our Family Ticket is just £45 for all-day travel (for two Adults and up to two Children) and includes free storytelling and a free activity book* worth £4.99 for each child^ to enjoy during their visit and take home!

We are operating four steam trains per day and throughout the week, travellers on the 11am and 1.45pm train will be able to listen to some of the 'Peter's Railway' stories in a specially-designated saloon carriage. Storytelling will also take place in our Waiting Room at Bodiam station at noon, 1:10pm, 2:40pm and 3:20pm.

To launch half term on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th February we are delighted to welcome Chris Vine, Author of the 'Peter's Railway' Childrens books to meet visitors and to sign copies of his books which are available for sale at Tenterden and Bodiam stations. Chris will be providing inspiring Junior Engineer talks at Tenterden station at 10am and 1pm, with the help of our very own 100 year old 'Norwegian' locomotive. 

Later in the week "Primary Science" will provide live science workshops at Tenterden Town station, where children can join in fascinating and fun activities, showing how forces make things work and create a toy to take home*! These workshops will take place on Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd, between 10:30am - 4:30pm.

To make the most of your visit to us, why not take the short walk up to Bodiam Castle - present your valid K&ESR ticket to receive a discount on entry to the National Trust Castle!
