Book now to meet ‘Thomas the tank engine’ at the Spa Valley Railway on the above dates. ‘Thomas’ will be joined by some of his friends from the famous railway stories, including ‘Percy’, ‘Duck’, ‘Daisy’, ‘Diesel’ and ‘Jinty’. Ensuring they all behave will be ‘Sir Topham Hatt, The Fat Controller’.
‘Thomas’ will spend most of the day at Tunbridge Wells West to ensure he can meet everyone, but his friends will take it in turns to pull the special hourly trains on a 7 mile round trip (approx 45 mins). Our special all inclusive tickets include reserved seats for a train ride on your nominated train, plus access to the special attractions in the locomotive shed and yard at Tunbridge Wells.
Whilst at Tunbridge Wells you can meet ‘Thomas’ and watch him shunting his trucks. There are also special activities for children including Punch and Judy, Thomas Storytelling and traditional childrens games. Our Buffet Car and Thomas Gift Shop are both located here.
The fully inclusive tickets are £10.00 for adults and £8.00 for children. Children under 18 months and babies in arms travel free.
Due to limited accommodation, advanced booking is strongly advised.
