Enjoyed our return trip to Walsingham on this train. Potters along a track between Wells and Walsingham through some lovely countryside at a sedate pace. The staff were great and obviously passionate about this little piece of history.

HI Clare, Thank you for your feedback and I'm so sorry you had such a disappointing day with us. The day in question (and particularly the train you wanted to board) was overwhelmingly busy for us in what is a busy season. This is no...More

Wow, wasn't expecting this little railway to be as good as it was. The trip from Wells to Walsingham is a long one and scenic and takes you to within walking distance to the centre of Walsingham. And wow, what a place Walsingham is. Didn't...More

OMG!!! Its a little train!! Journey from Wells to the pretty village of Walsingham takes about 25 mins, travelling through the Norfolk countryside. So much fun!! We drove to the little station at Wells and you have to walk a little to go into Walsingham....More

Wisbech to the railway at Wells-Next-The-Sea is 1 hour 23 minutes. Also allow 15 minutes for the Hardwick roundabout at King's Lynn which can be a nightmare in summer.
