Exciting Family Days Out

Climb aboard for a journey back in time along the historic East Kent Railway.


COVID-19 Update

Due to the lockdown effective from November 5th all train services are suspended.

Our Cafe at Shepherdswell will be open Friday to Sunday for Takeaway only, the Cafe at Eythorne is now closed until further notice.

Our grounds at Shepherdswell will be open for you to take your exercise and dog walking on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 10am and 3pm.

We remain committed to returning to operation as soon as we are able.

Santa By Train – We expect to be able to operate December dates but we will update you as soon as we have confirmation. November bookings have been contacted on the 6/11/2020 via email to reschedule.

Maintaining the railway and its overheads during time remain expensive and present a significant cash burn on already depleted reserves – if you are able to donate to our funds to help us through these unprecedented times then we would really appreciate it.


Thank you from all of us at East Kent Railway.
