Bring Back Euro Trains

Campaign for the return of international trains to Kent stations

Ashford International Station

Campaign to Reinstate Kent’s European Train Services

Supporting Ashford and Ebbsfleet’s International Status

Bring Back Euro Trains campaigns for the return of cross-Channel train services to Kent stations Ashford and Ebbsfleet, which were suspended during the pandemic and never reinstated.

Bring Back Euro Trains is managed by a small core group of dedicated volunteers working together for the good of Ashford, Kent and cross-Channel rail networks generally. Our aim is to pursue engagement and dialogue with all stakeholders until these services resume.

By signing the petition, you are demonstrating that the demand and sentiment for a Cross-Channel train service remains strong in Kent.
