Tenterden - Northiam - Bodiam
Kent & East Sussex Railway

Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July

Step onboard a restored steam train for a terrific family journey, complete with pre-historic appearances by our wonderful mini-dinosaurs!

Arrive at Tenterden Town Station (TN30 6HE) for the start of your journey back thousands of years.

Collect a free Dinosaur storybook, a gingerbread biscuit, activity sheet and crayon for every child, giving them plenty to do during the journey.

As the steam train leaves the station, prepare to see some surprising fellow passengers! The dinosaurs are back to life and are coming to your carriage!

During the trip, you'll see a number of different dinosaurs. Can you name them all?
The return journey to Wittersham Road Station takes one hour approximately. Seating is either in exclusive, bookable film-style compartments or flexibly arranged around tables for four.

"Anyone thinking of going - do it! It was a really enjoyable morning for us, my two year old had a great birthday and loved interacting with the baby dinosaurs.

I think Strawberry the Stegosaurus was a particular favourite!

The dinosaur ‘handlers’ were excellent with the kids - of all ages, even the big kids 😉

Thanks to all....."
