More than a train ride… a steam train adventure!

Our All Day Rover Tickets are back! Hop on and off our service trains all day with this flexible ticket to travel, and make the most of all our unique stations have to offer at a leisurely pace.

With this ticket you can start your journey at any of our four stations, but don’t forget to refer to the timetable for the day of travel so you can plan where and when you will catch your trains.

Immerse yourself in the luxury of a bygone era and experience the theatre of steam. Explore your heritage at the first preserved standard gauge passenger-carrying steam railway.

Access to all our public areas has been reinstated with the reduction of Covid-19 restrictions, so celebrate by visiting our locomotive shed, exhibits and interactives at Sheffield Park Station, taking the little ones to the Elephant Van at Horsted Keynes Station (made famous as Downton Abbey Station in the popular TV series) or picnicking at beautiful Kingscote Station. Watch the engine run round to the other end of the train at East Grinstead Station.

The Bessemer Arms pub restaurant will be open at Sheffield Park Station and serving drinks and delicious meals. Opening times may vary so please refer to the Today at the Railway page.

Travelling in a group or by yourself? It doesn’t matter. With this ticket and free seating, you can travel in our open carriages and available 3rd class compartments. Why not upgrade to 1st class for a bit more elegance and style? (upgrades subject to availability on the day)
