Visited over the bank holiday weekend. Really reasonable priced return ticket costing 14£ each. The price of the ticket means you can get on and off the line all day long. Great link between the two towns. They do jazz trains and historic 1940s train...More

Mid-Norfolk railway is a great day out, whether as adults or, even better, with children. The prices are reasonable, the attraction is well presented and the route, Dereham to Wyndham, gives one a chance to explore these two towns. Of which, Wymondham is by far...More

Every time we come to Norfolk we always head straight for the Dereham and the MNR. It's a glorious ride to Wymondham, very reasonable fares and excellent, friendly staff. We love it!

We took our two children on the railway for Christmas. I don't think I would bother if we didn't have kids as it's all geared up for them. However they did the experience really well, with staff (who are all volunteers) all dressed up. Food...More

Hi, there is a large Car park at Dereham which on most days is adequate. On certain special event days, this can fill up very quickly. There are however lots of free parking around Dereham. There is a very small car park at Wymondham Abbey Halt, and no parking available at our smaller country stations. Hope this helps.
