Exciting News!

We're re-opening, our first running day will be on August 15th.  We will be opening for our NEW opening hours of 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

We will also be opening for the third Sunday of September and October, at the same times.

We will not be running our usual Evening Running or our Santa Specials this year, they require a lot of planning and preparation, and we feel there's still a significant risk of them having to be canceled in the event of further lockdowns, hopefully, we'll be able to reintroduce these in 2022.

You are very welcome to wear a face-covering if that will make you feel more comfortable.

Please also note that we have no facilities for card transactions and are strictly CASH ONLY.

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!)
