Runs throughout the Summer Season

On selected days throughout the year, come and join us on board our beautifully heritage 1960s carriages whilst being hauled by our magnificently restored steam* engine, all while enjoying a scrumptious Cream Tea, for a real nostalgic treat. 


Relax and take in the exquisite Mid-Norfolk countryside whilst our smartly attired staff serve you with our exquisite homemade scones and buffet sized cake all whilst sipping on a cup of tea or coffee. 

The ticket includes all day travel on any of our trains and a reserved seat aboard our Cream Tea steam* train for a return journey from Dereham to Thuxton and back.
