Ride the iconic Bluebell Railway steam train 11 miles between East and West Sussex, gliding through fields of bluebells and forests. From this unique vantage point you'll be able to admire the sheer beauty of a truly British countryside stretching between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead. The track ran its first public service in 1960 but pre-dates to before 1922, so you'll be part of making its history!
Your train journey will start at the Bluebell Railway in Sheffield Park, where you can board the train and relax in the comfortable seats. The steam will start to roll.. the wheels will start to turn.. and you'll be off past Horsted Keynes, Kingscote and East Grinstead, each with fascinating stories that contribute to its iconic history. Once you have finished your magical train journey you'll have the rest of the day to explore Wakehurst Place, a beautiful botanical garden. Part of the Kew Garden Group, Wakehurst Place is a huge 16th century property in Ardingly. With 500 acres of landscaped gardens, you can spend however long you wish wandering at your leisure.

A great day out
we had a lovely meal on the trip the food was excellent
Excellent day out. However is not really a trip through the countryside as you just go up and down the line 4 times. Would be better as an actual route.
