Welcome to Barton House Railway
VISIT BARTON HOUSE RAILWAY IN OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY YEAR
The Barton House Railway (BHR) is a narrow gauge railway in a rear garden located alongside the River Bure in Wroxham and 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 fully 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 delicious cakes, some of those home-made, and light refreshments by the river and also observe the signalman at work in our full-size original signal box which acts as the nerve centre controlling the railways.
We operate two gauges of track. The original raised track is now known as 'Mid-Land Railway' and is 3 1/2 inch gauge. The larger ground track known as 'Riverside Railway' is 7 1/4 inch gauge.
We are open from 2.30pm to 5.30pm on the third Sunday of the Month, from April to October, as well as Easter Monday.

BHR regularly uses its electronic powered boats to ferry visitors from the village centre (Wroxham Bridge) to the riverside BHR.
