Kensington Railway Station

Kensington Railway Station

Trains began passing through the heart of Kensington in 1875, bringing along numerous benefits and prosperity. The
Kensington Train Station was officially opened in 1905 and everyone agrees it is the most architecturally outstanding of PEI’s stations, built from boulders left behind during the last ice age. The Railway Station officially closed in 1983 when trains stopped operating on PEI, but the community was keen to preserve the National Historic Site. Today, the site is a true destination, with The Island Stone Pub and The Willow Bakery and Cafe, entertainment, The Kensington Art Gallery Cooperative and most importantly – the province’s tip-to-tip cycling, walking (and snowmobiling) trail passes directly through the site! If you’ve been out cycling or walking on Confederation Trail in the Heart of PEI, you will find the Kensington Railway Station a most appealing spot to put up your feet, grab a snack, check out the historic engines and enjoy the sunshine!

Our community is working together to promote tourism and economic growth in Kensington and the Heart of PEI region.
