We were given a Murder Mystery trip on the 1940's themed steam railway for my birthday. I loved it. We didn't manage to solve the murder but we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, particularly the dinner en route. To be repeated. Thoroughly recommend it.

New Year's Day trip to Holt and back. The volunteer staff were all very friendly and helpful, in fact as it was raining and the windows were steamed up the conductor cleaned them - a lovely touch. Mince pie and sherry - what better start to 2017

A very civilised way to visit Holt from Sheringham - although the walk from the station in Holt to the town was a little unexpected. Be prepared for a 20 minute walk. The mince pies were very tasty and a good excuse for a small sherry at 10.30am. Friendly staff who obviously enjoy being involved with the railroad. The seating... More

We had a very good day with our grandchildren taking them on this steam train. They loved the experience and saw the Norfolk coast from a different perspective. We shall go again!

What fun, a steam train by the coast. We paid for the 'Mince Pie & Sherry Trip' It was great fun. The staff who I believe are mostly volunteers did a great job at recreating that age old feel of the hay days of steam travel. Things like this can so easily be missed, but are certainly worth doing. Although... More
