Sandling railway station is used by the small community of Sandling and the surrounding villages a few miles west of Folkestone in Kent. It was opened in the late-19th century, originally as Sandling Junction, with four platforms, though these were reduced to two after several of the lines were closed in the first half of the 20th century. Unlike many British stations, the original red-brick ticket office with its classic overhanging roof is still intact and in use today. There’s also the original ornate metal footbridge that links the two platforms and facilities like waiting shelters, bench seating and timetable posters. Today, the station is managed by Southeastern and served by the South Eastern Main Line which runs from the capital to Folkestone. There is an hourly service direct to London Charing Cross in 1 hour 36 minutes and Folkestone Central in 8 minutes.
When you step off the train in Sandling, you’ll be in the heart of the Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Br sure to bring your walking boots because you’re not going to want to miss a chance to hike along the achingly beautiful trails that wind through valleys and rolling hills.
