How can I get to you from the train station?
This year we are thrilled to announce that we have joined up with Bexley Accessible Transport Scheme who will be providing a 16 seater minibus running a shuttle to/from Birchington station – operating to coincide with the train timetable. The vehicle has a fully hydraulic tail life for wheelchair access (please note the capacity of 16 will reduce if wheelchairs are using the vehicle).
