Short Breaks in Norfolk: Steam Trains and Historic Sites in Norfolk
Short breaks in Norfolk can be filled with endless tourist attractions and sights to see. The stunning countryside and coast of North Norfolk has long been admired by ornithologists, artists and photographers. Norfolk is home to the lovingly preserved North Norfolk railway. The coastal railway, also known as the Poppy Line because of the flowers that bloom along the track, operates both steam and historic diesel engines and connects the town of Sheringham to Weybourne and Holt. Further afield, there is the Bure valley railway with a steam train that tootles along the track and the restored mid-Norfolk railway also operates steam-hauled excursions.
