Bressingham is a Charitable Trust preserving Steam Transport of all kinds in a Garden Setting which the whole family can enjoy. The aim of the trust is to provide moving steam powered exhibits full of life rather than a purely static display, so expect some smoke, soot, oil, and working exhibits you can get close too rather than a roped off lifeless collection. The majority of staff have always been volunteers, who graciously give their time for others to enjoy the collection of steam artefacts given by Alan Bloom to the trust.

Spent a sunny October day at Bressingham which was an experience day present. Plenty to see and do if you like steam trains (which I do) and/or Dad's Army (which I do). Nice little cafe but the shop was a bit to child orientated with...More

Not a very busy October weekend, so no question for the trains or carousel. Had a steam train voucher, if you're going with young kids then this seems like the best place to use it. A great new play area, good range of food (although...More

Bressingham is a wonderful place to visit with lots to do plus rides on narrow gauge steam trains and gallopers. For your entry fee you can have 3 rides on the gallopers and as many rides as you want on the trains. The museum is...More
