The Spa Valley Railway joins the Seven Wonders of the Weald
The members of the Seven Wonders of the Weald are delighted to announce that the Spa Valley Railway in Royal Tunbridge Wells has joined other popular Kent attractions which together make up this successful tourism partnership which began 15 years ago in 2005.
The Spa Valley Railway will join existing members Chiddingstone Castle, Knole, Scotney Castle, Hole Park, Biddenden Vineyards and the Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells.
The Spa Valley Railway was approached to be a Seven Wonder of the Weald for its year round appeal and exciting annual events programme which appeals to all ages. This heritage railway brings history to life with a mix of steam and diesel locomotives and boasts a destination at every station. The railway is entirely run by volunteers who ensure passengers can experience a memorable day out including on special events days and on its popular dining trains.
Jonnie Pay, commercial manager at the railway, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with the other members of the Seven Wonders of the Weald to promote Kent and Royal Tunbridge Wells to a wider audience. We hope that even more visitors will come and see us in 2020 to enjoy a memorable journey on our delightful heritage railway which operates trains between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge stations. Passengers can also choose to alight at High Rocks and Groombridge Stations to enjoy the surrounding areas with its walks and nearby attractions.’
The partnership offers a fantastic value pass which allows one free visit to all the attractions for just £30. The pass can be used at any time in the 12 months after purchase and can be obtained from www.sevenwonders.org.uk
The Seven Wonders of the Weald website also has details of events taking place at the attractions.
