Staff were really helpful!

Railway was lovely trip. Holt town far from the station (1.5 miles) but there is a bus service. Staff were all really pleasant and couldn't do more for you.

We enjoy our steam trains and went to Sheringham for the purpose of visiting the railway. We found the stations and train stock to be very well kept and in good condition. The trains we travelled on all ran to time. The only comment I would make is the price of parking at the car park next to the station... More

Having not taken a journey on the North Norfolk Railway since my early childhood, my girlfriend and I decided to do so as part of a weekend trip to the coast. Overall, the experience was a lovely one; seeing the old steam engines in prime condition is absolutely wonderful and really tapped into my inner child's love of trains, and... More

Excellent day out , station and trains take you back in time to a lost era. The staff and train drivers were very friendly and helpful. The shop was interesting and had plenty of memorabilia to purchase.Well worth a visit.

My husband and I rode the steam train from Sheringham to Weybourne and walked to Sheringham Park from there. The train was nice and clean and well preserved. The atmosphere on the train was great; staff/volunteers and customers were all in a cheery mood which added greatly to the experience. Worth every penny

An excellent facility, run by true enthusiasts with plenty of interest beside just the railway. We travelled as a couple but would be ideal for the family, old and young. Check their website for times and engine type if you want to travel behind steam. There is even a model railway at the Holt end.

We went from Sheringham to Holt on a very sunny Friday in February. Plenty of room at this time of year but I don't know what it would be like in high summer.It's a 20 - 25 minute walk into Holt from the station, so if you have children, it might be worth catching the bus. All the volunteers obviously... More
