Enjoy a day out in Sussex and take a trip on a steam train before wandering through some beautiful botanical gardens on this Bluebell Railway Steam Train and Visit to Wakehurst Place for Two. The Bluebell Railway is a heritage line running along the border between East and West Sussex, taking you through beautiful scenery while you sit in a lovingly preserved steam train carriage. With the second largest collection of steam trains and carriages in the UK, there’s plenty for fans of the steam engine to take a look at. The various stations en-route have been restored to show different periods of the railway’s life, so you’ll be taking a trip through time as you travel between 1960s East Grinstead and 1920s Sheffield Park. On the day you’ll also make your way to Wakehurst Place, the country estate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and home to the world’s largest seed conservation project. Take a stroll through the natural woodland and lakes while admiring the gardens, Elizabethan House and tree collections that make Wakehurst Place internationally renowned.

You can enjoy this experience in any order, but you will need to drive between the two sites, either starting at Wakehurst and moving to the Bluebell Railway or setting off with steam trains before wandering through the Place’s botanic gardens. You can spend as long as you like at either attraction at the discretion of the railway and Wakehurst, but we think you’ll want 3 to 4 hours at Wakehurst Place and up to 2 hours at the Bluebell Railway. There is a café and restaurant at Wakehurst Place for refreshment during the day (at an additional cost) and dining options you can pre-book on the Bluebell Railway. However, you’re more than welcome to bring your own food to both – gardens are the perfect place to bring a picnic.
