Tenterden Christmas Market 2018

Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th November


The Kent & East Sussex Railway are proud to support Tenterden's Christmas Market for the third year. In conjunction with our friends at Rother Valley Timber, we are providing a shuttle service to Tenterden Station from the Rother Valley Timber car park, Tenterden Road, TN17 4QZ, just a short walk along A28 from Rolvenden station.

In support of the Town and local community, we are proud to offer this shuttle service free of charge! However as a charity ourselves we'd be delighted to receive donations towards the cost of providing the service - donation buckets will be available on the train!

Space for a limited number of pushchairs will be available in the train luggage area.

Trains will depart from Rolvenden station every 30 minutes as shown below for the short journey (approximately 10 minutes) up the line to Tenterden Town Station. The town is a short walk up Station Road to the High Street where the Christmas Market will be in full swing!
