Welcome to Barton House Railway


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.
