Important Covid Update

Please note due to Kent and the wider south-east area being placed into new Tier 4 restrictions all of our train services have been suspended with immediate effect.

The railway and its grounds are closed until further notice. Our security team is onsite and will remain so. We are being inundated with emails and calls regarding refunds for Santa by train bookings. We will contact our customers in due course.

We apologise we are unable to deal with all of your enquiries as fast as normal. Our phone lines are currently unmanned due to the pandemic situation. The East Kent Railway is a charitable trust operated entirely by volunteers. We rely on our Santa by train bookings to carry the railway through its winter shutdown period. The pandemic and now the new Tier 4 regulations are having a huge financial impact on the railway and threaten it’s very survival.

If you are able to donate to our funds we would really appreciate any support you can offer during these unprecedented times.
