Bring your family and friends to a weekend of Hopping Fun at Bodiam Station in East Sussex on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September.

We will be running the railway’s heritage steam trains each day through the beautiful Wealden countryside between Tenterden and Bodiam stations with trains every 45 minutes.

Take a walk through the Hop Gardens and try your hand at picking hops before taking a peek inside a recreated Hoppers’ Hut. Children can also enjoy face painting, swing boat rides and games, Punch and Judy shows, balloon modelling and other activities. Live musicians and local dancing groups will be performing through the weekend. There will also be a selection of heritage vehicles on display and vintage stalls selling souvenirs.

The licensed ‘Hoppers Bar’ features a range of locally brewed real ales and the popular Hoppers Kitchen will be serving the very best in railway tea and scrummy homemade cakes! In addition to this the barbecue will have some local produce on offer including a delicious range of sausages.

Admission prices include all-day travel on the trains.
