Important Announcement

The Kent & East Sussex Railway is currently closed

The K&ESR has the safety and well-being of our customers, volunteers & staff as its highest priority.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and Government instructions, we have cancelled all public train services until the end of June.

Customers who have purchased tickets are being contacted individually, or you may contact us via [email protected] – your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. We have created a set of Frequently Asked Questions that can be accessed by clicking here

Along with many other businesses in the heritage & tourism field, we have closed to visitors at a time when our finances are already at their lowest ebb, following the winter maintenance closure. We are therefore appealing for donations to help the railway through this extraordinary period. The K&ESR is a registered educational charity & relies on its visitors to keep it running for today’s & future generations to enjoy. Donations of any amount are welcome and we offer our thanks for your kind support.
