Selling railway station serves the little community of Selling and the surrounding Kent villages and towns along the Chatham Main Line to Canterbury. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then London, Chatham and Dover Railway. It once served as a fine example of South East station architecture and was grade listed until it, unfortunately, it burnt down in an accidental fire in the ‘90s. Interestingly, the station was used in the ‘40s classic A Canterbury Tale where is was called Chillingbourne. There are two platforms with waiting shelters, timetable posters and bench seating as well as self-service ticket machines. There are two trains an hour direct to Canterbury East in 9 minutes while getting into the capital for a weekend break is a breeze on the irregular hourly service direct to London Victoria in 1 hour 36 minutes.
When you step off in Selling, you’ll be right on the edge of the mighty Kent Downs National Park where you can go hiking along the trails, horse riding or catch a glimpse of some beautiful British wildlife. If you’ve got some time, be sure to visit the nearby Chilham Castle, a stately 17th-century house surrounded by well-manicured grounds.
