A 'walk and ride' circular trail from Bodiam railway station. Follow waterside, woodland and field paths past Bodiam's magnificent castle and beside the River Rother. Start and end your trip with a ride on the wonderful Kent & East Sussex Railway from Tenterden.

Kent & East Sussex Railway

This rural light railway line gently wends its way from Tenterden - "The Jewel of The Weald" for ten and a half miles, through the unspoilt countryside of the Rother Valley, to terminate in the shadow of the magnificent National Trust castle at Bodiam.

Vintage steam and historic diesel trains dating from Victorian times transport you back in time. Refreshments are available at Tenterden station and on many trains, including cream teas, light lunches and luxury Pullman dining for dinners.
