Take the steam train from Tenterden and enjoy a weekend of Hopping Fun at Bodiam Station in East Sussex on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September.

Take a walk through the Hop Gardens and try your hand at picking hops before taking a peek inside a recreated Hoppers Hut.

The railway’s heritage steam trains will run each day through the beautiful Wealden countryside between Tenterden and Bodiam Stations with trains every 45 minutes.

While enjoying a beer from the beer tent listen to Live musicians "The Sideboard Men" who will be entertaining visitors over the weekend.

Everyone can enjoy Punch and Judy shows and all the fascinating displays of hopping equipment together with vintage and agricultural vehicles.

Children can also enjoy face painting and swing boat rides and balloon modelling. Look out for Mr Topper the stilt walker.

The BBQ will have some local produce on offer including a delicious range of sausages.

The licensed ‘Hoppers Bar’ features a range of locally brewed real ales and the popular Hoppers Kitchen will be serving the very best in railway tea and scrummy homemade cakes!

Admission including all-day travel on the trains: Adult £18, Child (3 - 15 years inc.) £12 and Family (2 adults + up to 3 children or 1 adult and up to 4 children) £38.
