For the past 88 years the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway has been an integral part of the landscape of the Romney Marsh. Known as “Kent’s Mainline in Miniature”, our World Famous one-third full size Steam & Diesel locomotives (trains) have powered their way along the 13½ miles of track from the Cinque Port town of Hythe, terminating in Dungeness; a National Nature Reserve and one of the largest shingle landscapes in the world.
With 4 stations in between, all within walking distance of a beach, our railway provides you with an opportunity to explore this unique corner of Kent. Coast & country walks, with all manner of wildlife & flora to be seen, cycle rides, medieval churches and iconic
Lighthouses are all on our doorstep.
With excellent catering facilities available at some stations (see our Facilities page), our ever-popular
Model Railway Exhibition, 1940’s Museum and Play Park at New Romney Station, good station shops,
free car parking and facilities to assist our Disabled visitors, RH&DR is the perfect any-weather, all-generations great day out.
