Easter

There are plenty of opportunities to visit Sittingbourne’s Steam Railway this Easter – we’re running all four days and will be celebrating the reopening of the Railway for the 2017 Season. A quick return trip takes about an hour, but feel free to stay longer and visit our award winning gardens, museum, Footplate Café and Railway Shop.

Good Friday Flowers

On Good Friday we give children the opportunity to draw a wrap for a plant pot and then to choose and plant a pot. Below are photos of the plants and the instructions for their upkeep from the 2016 event.
