Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre


Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre dates back to 1846 when it was built as one of the railway stations along the Marston Vale Line. It is now home to a tea room, museum and gift shop, with an operational rail line.

The vintage tearoom provides the perfect place to stop and enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake. For those who feel a bit hungrier there is also a menu available which includes sandwiches and light lunches. Breakfast is also available.

You can enjoy food in our garden or in the Ladies Waiting Room.
