A trip on the steam train at half term was made more comfortable by the more than accommodating railway staff to help us on and off the train with our Pram and make sure we were sitting comfortably. A good day out and well worth the money.

This attraction is well established and regularly attracts large numbers of visitors. The focus on steam power is very good but the experience is limited by the short journey available. They really need to find a way of extending the length of the journey

Can’t get any better than a steam train at the station in the centre of your town with hundreds of tourists flocking from the adjacent car park to catch the next train. This has to be one of the special treats of North Norfolk. Whilst travelling down the North Norfolk Railway from Sheringham to Holt with special views of the... More

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
