Our Gift Cards make ideal presents for those who want the freedom to choose their perfect day

Gift Card

Whether it’s a day spent driving a steam locomotive, a romantic dinner for two or a family day out exploring the line, our gift vouchers make ideal presents.

Gift cards are the perfect present for those who'd like the freedom to choose their own special treat. They can be used to purchase our train travel tickets; pre-booked on-train catering; lunch or dinner on the Wealden Pullman; special Railway Experiences; or simply something from our Gift Shops.

Gift Cards are valid for two years from the date of purchase# and may be used in full or part payment, so there's plenty of time to choose a treat! Scroll down for some ideas about what's available to buy with our Gift Cards
