This ‘like’ completely shocked me,I mean a railway… I love a Sunday explore around somewhere quirky but for this one you’re gonna need your geek glasses. I shouldn’t joke because I definitely thought of all the blog picture possibilities when I agreed to go, it’s just it’s not my usual choice of Sunday afternoon stroll, or so I thought. The boy like trains and what he likes I’m up for trying. So off we went to Bluebell Railway at Horsted Keynes and I was in for a pleasant surprise. I know who am I and where has Rach gone.
The whole place is so quirky, it’s like travelling back in time. I love how well everything is maintained to keep it looking beautiful and true to the original station. The staff are dressed in appropriate period attire, I did smile at how cute they looked. The staff are all so friendly, no grouchy people and they are genuinely happy to be there which is actually really lovely to see. The place is calm and peaceful, unless they are releasing steam from the train, then you’re gonna jump out of your skin. You can wander round go for a walk in the surrounding country side or even hop on the train to a new destination. The picture opportunities are endless and it’s welcoming to everyone.
Moral of the story is definitely ‘Don’t judge a book by it’s cover’
It really is lovely wandering round and I’m quite happy to now go and explore a few more further afield.
Let me know if you’ve visited the Bluebell Railway or leave me recommendations of other stations to go exploring. Lets see if we can find one John doesn’t know about…
