Railways - Penshurst Station

Penshurst Railway Station

It is important to note that Penshurst Station is not in the centre of Penshurst but is really located at Chiddingstone Causeway. There is no taxi connection unless one has pre booked – please see local taxi companies.

More energetic folk might like to walk, but it is approximately 3 miles by road, less over the fields. If one is planning to walk then Leigh Station is a more direct walk, being mostly on Penshurst Place Estate, see map.


Arriva operate buses to Penshurst (231 and 233) and provide other regular services in the area. Autocar Services provide some commuter buses. For more details see
