Even if you are not planning on travelling by steam or diesel train from Bodiam Station, it’s well worth visiting the various carriages and exhibitions. I found the waiting room especially interesting, as it gives a glimpse into the hop-picking experience.

A nice little station as a destination (or return point) but no parking as a start point in a journey if arriving by car. Clean toilets and outdoor seating area for picnics. Small indoor waiting area if raining.

Our boy (10) loves trains so this was a real treat. The station is well kept, bathroom, picknick area, old carriages, kind staff. We parked at Bodiam Castle (3 pounds for the day), 10 minute walk away. And of course we took the train!
