Elham Valley Railway

Click here for further details
Nestled between Canterbury and Folkestone, the Elham Valley is situated in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is good access by car from the M20 and A2, alternatively by train to Canterbury or Folkestone and the regular No.17 Stagecoach bus service which runs along the valley.

There can be few places as tranquil as Kent's Elham Valley that are so easy to reach and offer such a range of activities. Enjoy a walk in the unspoiled countryside followed by a pub lunch at one of the many charming village pubs.
Breathe in the fresh air, drink in the views and feel yourself relax.

There's accommodation to suit every budget from B&B to self catering or luxury rooms. The location makes it a great place for an overnight stop before a channel crossing from the nearby port of Dover or the Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone.

The Elham Valley Way, a 21 mile promoted footpath, passes over fields and through woods and villages, it therefore provides a wondeful encounter for the long distance walker. The Way largely traverses the track of the old Canterbury – Folkestone Elham Valley Railway which closed in 1947.

The pretty village of Elham hosts some wonderful historic houses of Kent together with welcoming pubs, and log fires in the winter.
