Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway

For all train enthusiasts there’s nothing quite like a ride on The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway – one of Kent’s top tourist attractions!

7 or 87 years old -- I can promise you will love a trip on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway!


Take a step back in time as you journey on one of the small steam or diesel trains that this heritage railway proudly has to offer and enjoy a unique experience travelling through some of Kent’s most picturesque and diverse countryside.

The natural starting place for a journey on the RH&DR is at its station in the historic and pretty town of Hythe. It’s one of six along the track, which stretches 13 miles across the picturesque Romney Marsh to Dungeness, one of the largest expanses of shingle in the world, a place of other-worldly beauty and a designated National Nature Reserve.

Originally opened in 1927 it now operates the most complete collection of one-third full-sized steam locomotives in the world. These small but perfectly-formed trains, take just over an hour to complete the full journey from Hythe to Dungeness but there are opportunities to get off and explore along the way too.

At Dymchurch, a five-minute walk will take you to the village centre with its children’s amusement park, shops, cafes and sandy beach. Stop at New Romney Station and you can visit the Model Railway Exhibition, museum and children’s play area. There are cafes at each of these main stations too and special events throughout the year.
