All-day "TravelCard" Ticket - a great value day out

Our great value all-day TravelCard 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, Bodiam Castle - show your valid K&ESR train ticket at the National Trust entrance to receive a discount on admission!

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.
