About Whitwell and Reepham Railway Station

Nestled in the mid-Norfolk countryside, just alongside The Marriott’s Way and just 1 mile from the Georgian town of Reepham, Whitwell and Reepham Railway Station has been lovingly restored to its former glory. Re-opened in 2009, nearly 50 years after it was closed to passengers, our fantastic team relayed track and sidings, acquired rolling stock and brought the old station and signal box back to life.

The Railway Station is now a wonderful place for both locals and tourists to visit. Why not hire a bike and take a ride along The Marriott’s Way, before settling in the café for a cuppa and a slice of cake? Or explore the museum and station, then enjoy a pint in our sunny garden? And at the weekends, no visit would be complete without a ride up and down the track on one of our treasured trains.

We are proud to host a fabulous array of events throughout the year, including our ever-popular Steam Rallies.

Our newly refurbished, spacious Sidings Function Room is available to hire – the perfect setting for your own celebration.

We attended as a family for the Christmas train ride, and honestly cannot recommend it highly enough! The staff were all so friendly, the Santa experience was amazing, and the ticket prices were nothing to grumble about!! A huge positive as well was that they didn’t oversell the tickets and pack you in like sardines, the whole experience was more personal for the children that way, and you could see the care and love that went into organising this event! We shall certainly be returning, even if there’s not a specific event in mind. The train ride was brilliant, especially for my toddler who’s concentration doesn’t always last too long - the ride length was perfect for him. I’ve already been telling family and friends how good the whole thing was!
