Group Visits

If your group numbers 15 or more, in addition to our legendary warm welcome, you’ll enjoy discounted rates for single or return train travel between Tenterden, Northiam and Bodiam stations and complimentary seat reservations on the train of your choice.

There are many refreshment options available to enhance your visit and your Coach Driver may travel free of charge – where refreshments are booked for the group, we’ll also provide them with a snack free of charge!

Advance booking is necessary for all groups and provides you with the peace of mind that we’ll be prepared for your visit. A deposit of 25% will secure your booking and the balance of payment with final confirmed numbers is due no less than 14 days prior to the date of travel.
