Things to do at Lavender Line review

The Lavender Line is a lovely little railway which travels for a two mile round trip through the beautiful Wealden countryside with both diesel and steam engines. Check the timetable to see what is running on the day of your visit.

There’s a miniature railway which runs on selected Sundays throughout the year. It’s 45 metres long and goes from the gift shop on platform 2 to the picnic area. The lovely thing about the miniature railway is that all profits go towards St Thomas children’s hospital.

There’s also a children’s play area, signal box in a grade II listed building and cattle dock crane which was once the key part of the station being the only means of loading and unloading goods including, as the name suggests, cattle. 

Other points of interest include the viewing area just a short walk away where you can watch the trains go by from the top of an embankment giving you a wonderful view. In Spring the surrounding countryside is awash with Bluebells making it the perfect place to watch the trains. You can also browse the gift shop where you can buy the perfect gift for any railway enthusiast.

The railway journey itself is approximately 23 minutes long on a round trip. You can buy an all-day ticket so you can ride the train as many times as you like and with the other attractions at the Isfield you could easily have 2 hours here or longer if you want to also have a walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
