North Norfolk Railway

Station Approach, Sheringham, NR26 8RA, United Kingdom

The North Norfolk Railway offers a 10.5 mile round trip by steam train through a delightful area of North Norfolk.

The North Norfolk Railway offers far more than just a train ride! Grab your tickets, watch the guard wave his green flag, listen for the sound of the whistle and a whoosh of steam as you set off on a timeless journey through some of Norfolk’s most stunning coastal scenery and beautiful countryside.

The heritage railway is fondly known as the ‘Poppy Line’ after the 19th Century poet and theatre critic Clement Scott coined the term “Poppyland” referring to the unspoilt coastal area around Sheringham where poppies grow in abundance.
Lovingly-restored steam and heritage diesel trains transport passengers on an 11 mile return journey between the delightful Victorian resort of Sheringham and the smart Georgian town of Holt.

Make a day of it with our great value rover tickets that are valid for unlimited travel allowing you to hop on and off all day! We recommend booking in advance and passengers doing so receive a generous discount on their fares.
Enjoy our historic stations, William Marriot Museum, model railways, buffets and souvenir shops.

Looking for something extra-special? The Railway also offers a wide range of Dining Trains, Experience Days and special event weekends.
