Plan your trip

Sevenoaks Station

The historic market town of Sevenoaks thrums with independent and high street shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Stroll the length of the High Street to see Knole, a 600 year old estate in an exquisite medieval deer park.

Bat & Ball Station

From here you can explore Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve but before you do make sure to spend time marvelling at the beautifully restored Victorian station, once used by Queen Victoria when she visited Knole.

Otford Station

You'd never know it when you first step off the train at this quiet village with a duck pond at its heart, but Otford was once home to one of the biggest palaces in England.

Shoreham Station

A pretty village with a medieval bridge spanning the River Darent, Shoreham is the place for country walks and wine tasting at the award-winning Mount Vineyard.

Stretch your legs with a walk from Shoreham Station to Eynsford Station. Enjoy listening to local farmer William Alexander as you wander across this rural landscape of rolling hills, deep valleys and meandering rivers. Discover a Norman castle, a Roman villa and a feat of Victorian engineering. Click here to see the full route...

Eynsford Station

In and around Eynsford you'll find the Norman remains of Eynsford Castle, Lullingstone Roman Villa (the largest excavated Roman villa in England) and Lullingstone Country Park. There's also Lullingstone Castle and The World Garden, around a 25 minute walk from the station.

Around 1.5 miles from Eynsford Station (and the same distance from Shoreham Station) you'll find Castle Farm. Here you can explore the picturesque Lavender Fields and make sure you visit the The Hop Shop before you leave.

Swanley Station

The last stop brings us to Swanley station, the perfect place to enjoy a craft beer at the Cotton Mill Micropub or explore Swanley Park with its boating lake, aquapark and mini railway, around a 30 minute walk from the station.
