The Bredgar & Wormshill Light Railway

Our narrow gauge railway is set in the delightful and secluded 30 acres on the North Downs in Kent. It is central to our activities here at Bredgar and is part of a collection of restored vehicles and exhibits which ensure an absorbing day out for both enthusiast and the family.

A day at Bredgar includes unlimited trips in our vintage style railway carriages hauled by gleaming historic locomotives. Our main building houses the steam locomotives which are resting on the day of your visit, vintage motor cars, a steam powered beam engine, our superb and extensive model railway and numerous small exhibits. Also working on the site will be our road and agricultural traction engines and some of our vintage tractors. We have woodland walks and plenty of places in the field or woods for visitors to have a picnic and for children to play. There is a large free car park. A warm welcome awaits those who visit our tea room and the railway shop, both of which are open throughout the day.

The Bredgar & Wormshill Light Railway is twinned with Le Chemin de Fer Touristique de la Vallee de l’Ouche in Burgundy, France.
