Day Rover Ticket - a great value day out

Our great value all-day Rover Tickets allow unlimited travel along the full 10½ miles of the Railway. They allow a break in your journey so you can get off the train at any station and explore the area or visit one of the attractions nearby, for example, The Mill Toy & Pedal Car Museum or Bodiam Castle.

If you plan to make a day of your visit it’s easy to add a big breakfast, cream tea or Ploughmans Lunch to your itinerary – simply telephone 01580 765155 at least a day in advance to book.

For a small supplement you can experience the luxury of First Class travel, relaxing in comfort as the idyllic countryside rolls by.
