Book Tickets

We have provisionally set Thursday 20 May for the resumption of public train services. Please read our Reopening FAQs for information about what we are doing to prepare for reopening and our plans for these services.

You can now book your tickets online. We will initially release tickets for the first few weeks of services and will continue to release tickets in blocks of several weeks at a time. 

Tickets for dining services must be pre-booked in advance. We strongly advise customers to pre-book tickets online for The Pioneer and The Sussex Cricketer before the day of travel, but tickets will be available to purchase on the day, subject to availability.

Please see our timetables and calendar page to see when services are running.

All visitors to the Bluebell Railway must comply with the Government guidance on people meeting socially in place at the time of their visit. From 17 May, the government is planning to move to step 3 of its roadmap, which means the Rule of six or two households will apply indoors. Visitors travelling on our trains must be in groups of six or fewer, or with one other household . The full government roadmap out of lockdown can be found here. 

You can find our full safety measures on our Covid-19 Safety Measures page.

You can book ticket for the Members’ train here. Please note this train is first come, first served.
