I am by no means a train enthusiast. However visiting this railway makes you feel nostalgic. Everytime I visit Sheringham the buffet in the station is my first port of call from the car park opposite the station With a hot cup of tea and a home made scone I am ready for my day trip.

A short but enjoyable trip enjoying the occasional view of the sea. Impressed by the attention to detail at the stations in trying to recreate a bygone era.

A very well run heritage railway. Steam and diesel trains run from Sheringham to Holt via Weybourne. All three stations have attractions and history so a very interesting and educational day. It was a bit of a slow journey but that means you can enjoy the scenery. Possibly the biggest and best attraction in North Norfolk, well worth doing the... More

First time we had visited the railway, and we got to ride on a diesel train. The whole enterprise is extremely well run - very helpful staff in great period uniforms, fantastically maintained stations and rolling stock. Am looking forward to going back in the summer to ride on a steam engine!

We regularly do the murder mystery trains on this railway. As always, the meal was superb, the staff friendly and efficient, and the trip on the train was fantastic. However, the acting for the murder mystery was awful. We could not grasp the plot, who was who, and had little time to question actors. When we got off the train... More

Very well run railway. We were short on time but managed a trip on a Diesel train from Holt station to Sheringham, calling at Weybourne station on the way. At Sheringham station we visited the gift shop, then went to main Sheringham shopping street and we were pleased to find several shops, including Charity shops open even though it was... More
