North Norfolk Railway – Mince Pie Specials

Come and join us after Christmas, and relax with a glass of sherry and a mince pie whilst enjoying a leisurely journey through the winter countryside. Watch as the winter seas rage along the shoreline.

A hot mince pie and a glass of sherry will be served at your seat, with a soft drink and chocolate treat for the children. These will be served to holders of rover tickets only.

As well as an onboard buffet car serving mulled wine and other seasonal refreshments, Sheringham buffet will be open serving a selection of goodies, perfect for taking away those winter chills!

santa specials

North Norfolk Railway – Santa Specials

30th November, 1st, 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, & 20th – 24th December 2019.

Our magical Santa Special services run in the weeks before Christmas. They depart from Sheringham station and take passengers through some of Norfolk’s most beautiful winter scenery whilst the adults are served sherry and mince pies, children get a soft drink and chocolate treat.

Santa is waiting by his open fire at Santaland, ready to meet every boy and girl both young and old. Each infant (under 1 year) and child (1 year to 14 years) will receive an appropriate present for their age so please be careful when booking tickets.

After a period of time for looking around the station, passengers re-board the train for their journey back to Sheringham. With professional entertainers, quality presents and of course a ride behind a steam train, Christmas turns into a wonderful experience on the North Norfolk Railway’s unique Santa Specials.

Please note that Santa Special trains travel between Sheringham and Weybourne and return only. They do not travel to or from Holt. Passengers must travel back to Sheringham on the same train that they arrived on.

1940s weekend

North Norfolk Railway – The 1940s Weekend

By far the biggest live event in the North Norfolk Railway Calendar. Step back in time to the days of the blitz, rationing and utility clothing.

Step back in time at our annual 1940s weekend, our most popular event in the Railway calendar!

Over the years this event has attracted more and more visitors and more and more exhibitors. It is widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People who attended last year were booking accommodation before they left as they enjoyed it so much!

Come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Don’t forget your gas mask and ration books!

beer festival

North Norfolk Railway – Beer Festival

Happy birthday to you! Our 18th Annual Beer Festival will be held from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st July 2019. Beer, food, drink and entertainment will be all available over the three days at Sheringham station.

Our Beer Festival is established in the calendars of beer (and rail) enthusiasts’ alike. The festival continues to be successful with each year building on the last!

Please note that if you are lucky enough to look under 25, we will require identification in order to serve you, please don’t be offended if a member of our staff asks, and don’t forget to bring some with you, we would hate for you to go home disappointed!

vintage transport day

North Norfolk Railway – Vintage Transport Day

The Railway’s annual Vintage Transport Festival has become one of the “must attend” events for owners of classic cars, trucks and motorcycles. There is so much to see and do with everything from marine engines and bicycles to Rolls Royces and tractors on display.

As well as private entries, many local clubs attend.

Vintage buses will be giving free rides around the local area, and to and from all NNR stations.

Last year we had over 400 exhibits attending, including cars, bikes, buses and static engines!

The majority of vehicles will be at Holt station on Sunday, however, exhibits are spread across the Railway. Although buses will be running on both Saturday and Sunday, there will be no other exhibits at the Railway on Saturday.
