Travelling to the North Norfolk Railway by train? Take a Greater Anglia service to Sheringham station and you’ll find it just across the road! It only takes a minute from the station to reach the Railway. Step out onto Station Road and you’ll see the charming yellow and green Sheringham East signal box on the opposite side of the street, cross over and head along Station Approach until you get to the ticket office on your left-hand side.

The North Norfolk Railway – also known as The Poppy Line – is one of the most scenic heritage railways in the UK and has been running between Sheringham and Holt since 1887. As well as offering dining, afternoon tea and gin train experiences along the line, you can also become a steam or diesel train driver, guard or signal box operator for the day.
