Hotel Kent and East Sussex Railway


This rural light railway runs 10.5 miles along the Rother Valley from Tenterden to Bodiam with stops at Rolvenden, Wittersham Road and Northiam. Tenterden was by-passed during the railway building of the 19th century, but a light railway, the Rother Valley Railway, was eventually opened in 1900. A light railway was defined as cheaply constructed with a short life, with reconstruction to a higher standard hoped for from profits. It continued in this form until railway nationalisation in 1948, but losses to road traffic meant that the line closed to passengers in 1954 and to goods traffic in 1961. Enthusiasts managed to save the line from demolition and upgrade the track, and it was reopened gradually between 1974 and 2000. It now operates as a tourist railway running trains pulled by steam engines. Themed events, including a Santa Special, are staged, and a Pullman dining car runs on certain dates. Travellers can buy a daily hop-on hop-off ticket to visit stops on the route. Free car parking is available at Tenterden and Northiam stations. A timetable is posted on the website.
