Since March 2013, East Grinstead has become the northern terminus of the prestigious Bluebell Railway,
the UK’s premier restored railway.

There is a full programme of events through the year and frequent departures from the Bluebell’s East Grinstead platform.

The fabled Golden Arrow Pullman Dining trains as well as the Wealdon Rambler Afternoon Tea Service can both be boarded here. The station is only a short distance from the mainline Network Rail station which which connects directly with London in just under an hour.
