Home - Paddington


Come and meet Paddington at intervals on each day.

Don’t forget to bring your camera.

Pre-booking is essential for our VIP departures.

Pre-booked special train tickets guarantee a seat on a VIP departure from Hythe to New Romney Station to see Paddington. These tickets include reserved seat from Hythe to New Romney and return travel on any train (subject to space being available) plus unlimited travel to other stations for that day, so why not make the most of your day and visit another of our stations with this flexible ticket?

There is a choice of Departures from Hythe to New Romney:

  • 9:40, 10:40, 11:40 and 12:40

Advance online tickets include:

  • Reserved seat on the VIP departure from Hythe Station to New Romney Station.
  • Free parking at Hythe Station (subject to car park availability/capacity)

  • Free short train rides hauled by our famous and oldest steam locomotive ‘The Bug’ at New Romney Station.

The Railway will still be open for those wishing to travel along the line but the Heywood Buffet, the Model Exhibition and other New Romney facilities are exclusively for the use of this special event. Our Dungeness facilities and the End of the Line Restaurant will be operating as normal.
