It is a long walk from the town to the beach so this really helps. Not very scenic but really saves your legs!

Finally got around around to writing up last summers reviews. A nice little line, would be better if the run was longer for the money, bit pricey for what it is. Little to fault, ideal for families and young children. Handy for getting down to...More

This cute little train is good fun for little legs, it takes you the majority of the way down to the beach. It’s only £1.50 and makes a change from the walk, it’s also dog friendly.

A great way to get to holkham beach if you don't fancy the walk. There is no timetable but they run approximately every 15 minutes. I think the last one is at 6pm. £1.50 one way.
