Personalised headboards at Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway

Hercules’ Heritage Experience

Travel on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway ‘Hercules’ Heritage Experience’ for a steam train journey across the beautiful Kent countryside.

Begin your journey at Hythe Station (CT21 6LD) and travel to New Romney Station.

Alight from the train at New Romney Station to begin exploring RH&DR heritage.

Discover 4 new outdoor interpretation boards and learn about how these miniature steam trains work, the history of RH&DR turntables, signal box locations and much more!

Visit the new RH&DR Association Heritage Centre to learn the story about how the railway came to be. Visualise yourself at the grand opening in 1927, travelling through ‘the war years’ and other historical events and reaching the present day – perhaps even looking into the future.
