A fan of your real ales or ciders? Back for its 7th year, the Real Ale & Cider festival will see the whole railway come alive with some wonderful local brews!

The event will have 160+ Real Ales, 25+ Green Hop Beers, Key-Keg/Cask Beers, Belgian Beers & 30+ Ciders and is only possible through the support of West Kent CAMRA.

The main festival takes place in the railway’s Victorian Engine Shed at Tunbridge Wells West Station (next to Sainsbury’s and Homebase in Tunbridge Wells) where everyone can enjoy a pint or two throughout the day and decide wither to take a train ride too.

The festival not only takes place at Tunbridge Wells West Station but continues on the trains and also at Groombridge and Eridge Stations too.
