Simply fantastic. The staff/volunteers are all without exception polite, friendly and informative. The experience is like stepping back in time. We went on the steam train ride although we could have gone on the diesel as well. Overall a lovely experience that should be enjoyed by both enthusiasts and non enthusiasts. Whilst we're we're there, a party of school children... More

After parking at the large car park at Holt for a £1 donation, we enjoyed several trips behind the preserved B12 in its LNER colour. As usual, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. It's disappointing, but typical, that the council used the track to Holt as a bypass. This makes any extension problematic. Even so, we recommend anyone to experience... More

Even on less busy days, the NNR tries to run a mix of diesel and steam. The three main stations are maintained beautifully; all the volunteers are friendly. We had a steam engine to pull us from Holt to Sheringham, where we had a good wander around (and fish and chips) before returning by steam to Weybourne. At Weybourne, I... More

We had three days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Local highlight is The Mo museum North Norfolk railway and the local places of interest.

Had a great day between Sherringham and Holt on the railway. I am no enthusiast but this experience is both informative (thanks to the enthusiastic team) and full of interest due to the steam and heritage diesel trains and the classic cars they pull. A very enjoyable day and a great town at each end to visit.

Did a return trip from Holt to Sheringham on steam pulled train. Large free car park at Holt. Most enjoyable trip, friendly and helpful staff. Alternate trains were diesel driven. There is lots to see and the volunteers are improving things all the time and doing a magnificent. job. It is worth spending a couple of hours at least here,... More

Return trip from Sheringham to Holt on the steam train mince pie special. My grandchildren were in seventh heaven as there first train ride. Were made the feel very welcome with drinks and sweets for the children. When we arrived at Holt the eldest grandchild did not want to leave the carriage as she loved it so much. Lovely trip...
