Following a staff meeting yesterday we have made the difficult decision to abandon ALL 2020 runnings, including our Santa Specials, it would be incredibly difficult as a MINIATURE railway to provide the sort of social distancing measures that would keep us all safe, also having made all the extensive changes, it's entirely possible that a further lockdown could make all the hard work invalid.
However, we have decided to turn the remaining running days into 'socially distanced' staff work-days in the hope that next year we can reopen, bigger and better.
Hope to see you in 2021
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!)
