A big day out on the world's smallest public railway

Regular steam trains from the seaside town of Wells next the Sea to the beautiful village of Walsingham, with it's famous Abbey and shrines. Sit back and enjoy the nostalgic and atmospheric sights, sounds and smells of steam travel. Clanking over and under bridges, past a bill-fort and an abandoned platform, you get to choose between a mooch in Walsingham or the hustle and bustle of the beach and shops of Wells.

Beautiful views, wildflowers, butterflies, birds of prey, brown hare and deer all help to make your journey with us a memorable one. Childrens' activities during every holiday and lots of events to choose from. Free parking, wifi, toilets, cafe and gift shop, crazy croquet and picnic pods.

New for 2017 - Studio-Line Designs has opened a gallery shop at our Wells station, offering hand-made local crafts and art to suit all tastes and pockets.
