Worth an hour or two out of your day. This takes you back in time. In the museum there are lots of facts about the old station with some great information. The station platform itself is marvellous and in an excellent condition. Loved it

If visiting Sandringham this is worth travelling another few miles to see. It has been beautifully restored and maintained. It feels like a royal train might arrive any minute.

Opening hours need checking as it is only open during a few hours per day, but very interesting to check out the old station that royality used to use

This station is beautifully preserved and presented by the current owner. You are able to walk on the platform at no cost to soak up the atmosphere. Lovely

Agree with above. It's a private property and the owners are very good about letting people in and around. They may have been away and couldn't supervise the site.

Great place to visit. Definitely worth a visit. It is a private residence so pot luck if it is open. We popped by a few times until it was open. Try contacting the owner if possible.
