Kingscote Railway Station

Venue Type

Preserved Railway Station

Description

Kingscote railway station is a preserved railway station on the heritage Bluebell Railway.

The station was built in 1882 by the London Brighton and South Coast Railway.
The Bluebell Railway has restored this station to the British Railways period – mid 1950s.

The station was known as being one of the quietest stations on the Brighton network, only serving a few local houses with the closest village of Turners Hill about three miles away. The station did boast a large timber yard resulting in goods traffic being the most important activity at Kingscote.

A fantastic picnic area is available behind platform 2, ideal for kids to let off some steam and to watch the trains come and go.

Tea, coffee and snacks available from Spring until Autumn in “The Well House” alongside the picnic area on platform 2.

Disabled toilet and baby changing facilities are available on platform 1.
