Please see our timetables and calendar page to see what’s running and when.

You can book tickets online to save money on everyday travel services.

Please Note: Horsted Keynes Station is currently undergoing restoration work as part of the “Jewel In The Crown Project“, this will inevitably cause some disruption at the station over the coming weeks. We are ensuring disabled access to Platforms 3 and 4 will always be available.

Our catering facility, The King George V Buffet is not guaranteed to be open during this time, so you may wish to have your own provisions just in case. The Elephant Van and Gallery Carriage are being moved to the North end of platforms 1, but aside from a short period whilst they are being moved, will be open as per normal opening times.
