Trains and other things
Nov. 2019
This Venue is very much a hidden gem, nestled close to the Channel Tunnel yet far enough away not to hear it. Many Stallholders come back year after year and is a magnet for Train enthusiasts. Cafe was also a favourite of mine.

SHORT BREAK
Aug. 2019
What a hidden gem. Set in beautiful countryside the craft centre is first class and the adjoined railway museum is tops. Volunteer staff couldn't be more helpful and even the Cafe is reasonably priced. And all that makes this a must visit for families and kids of all ages. Thank you Elham Valley Rail.

Pleasant surprise
Jul. 2019 • Family
After getting lost in the surrounding area eventually found this attraction. A lovely surprise. The museum is based on the old Peene station and it is laid out with the trappings of a pre -war traveller. The main attraction for me is the original model of the Cheriton channel tunnel terminus. There are toilets on site. Their is a cafe and craft shop with plenty of parking. It is suitable for wheelchairs but not really for mobility scooters. Children will enjoy the miniature railway. Friendly staff, well worth a visit. BUT approach from the main A20 or be prepared to go round in circles!!!!

A walk back to the past age of steam
Aug. 2018
Tucked away in little Newington and Peene, there is a wonderful tribute and museum to the golden age of steam. Beautifully preserved station and very many mementos of the Elham Valley Steam Railway. Lots of photos and reminders of this journey to Canterbury. Full of unashamed nostalgia and several fascinating events that secretly took place during the Second World War, involving the railway line. Refreshments are available and all the dedicated volunteers are to be heartily commended.

Interesting railway museum
Apr. 2019 • Couples
This is a lovely place to visit. Children are well catered for, there is a miniature railway and on the day we visited the children (& Adults) we given sheets to fill in to find picture of bunnies hidden in various places. In the barn there are various local stalls selling wooden items, engraved glasses, local honey & lots of other things.The railway Museum is interesting. The cafe is reasonably priced. Would recommend this to anyone.

Great place for little people
Oct. 2018 • Family
A nice little railway museum which hosts an impressive mini-scale model of the Eurotunnel site right next to the Eurotunnel site itself. Totally ran by volunteers so bear that in mind when you go. There is barn with lots of art and crafts, a cafe with limited but tasty snacks, a free small mini crazy golf area (wooden), a museum that hosts some weird and wonderful artefacts from the war, a full scale train and signal box which is good to explore plus a little railway track which can be ridden by adults and children for £1.00 and is operated by a driver. This is a good attraction for young children say from 3 to 6 and is a sweet place.

Visit their website for details about membership and entry prices which I know are reasonable but I cannot remember how much.

Hidden Gem, more than just Trains too
Sep. 2018 • Family
We have visited twice now in the past month having decided that the annual pass was well worthwhile.
Both my 7 and 2 year old boys really enjoyed the variety of simple activities on offer (train rides, mini golf, playground etc.) I loved the fact that the full model from the Eurotunnel exhibition centre has been saved and relocated there.
There is also a barn full of mini craft shops and a model train shop on site
