Trains to Headcorn

Trains to Headcorn travel along the banks of the River Sherway on the South Eastern Main Line, before coming to rest in a charming Kent village. The station itself was opened in 1842, and was originally a wooden structure. It underwent rebuilds in the 1920s and 1980s, the latter bringing a completely new brick station that was opened by Maidstone's then MP Ann Widdecombe. Trains from Headcorn serve London Charing Cross, Dover Priory and Canterbury West. The village itself is a vibrant affair, with plenty of charismatic little shops, traditional pubs and independent restaurants along its High Street. The surrounding countryside is a popular place for parachuting thanks to the local Headcorn Aerodrome - one of the last surviving grass strip airfields in Kent, it serves a host of aircraft, from hot air balloons to helicopters to Spitfires. It's also home the Lashenden Air Warfare Museum and the Wings Bar and Restaurant, which is decked out with aviation memorabilia.
