Following the Prime Minister's announcement today (23rd March 2020) it is clear that Barton House Railway cannot operate, and is effectively closed until further notice. We will update you as and when we are able to restart operations.
Rest assured that maintenance and upgrade work is continuing, and we shall reopen bigger and better, probably next year
Stay safe everyone, and we'll catch you again when the Signalman clears the signals.
Welcome to Barton House Railway
Barton House Railway is a miniature ride-on railway located in a spacious garden alongside the River Bure in Wroxham. It re-creates a traditional railway atmosphere where the whole family can enjoy the nostalgia of the golden age of steam with two ride-on railways, a working full-size signalling system and authentic tickets.
During your visit, you can also explore our extensive museum of railway artefacts with a Midland and Great Northern theme, enjoy homemade cakes and light refreshments by the river and also observe the signalman at work in our full-size original signal box which acts as the control centre of the railway.
We operate two separate railways, The Midland Railway and The Riverside Railway, and we are currently constructing a third; The Museum Line. (Working Title!)
