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.
