Arrive by steam train

Steam gently down to Bodiam with the Kent

Sit back and enjoy the wonderful views of a 45 minute journey, as you steam gently through the beautiful East Sussex countryside on the Kent & East Sussex Railway. Trains run from Tenterden Town to Bodiam station throughout most of the year.  The estate is a 5-minute walk away from Bodiam station and is a great way to approach the castle.
