The Bure Valley Railway
The railway station at Coltishall was built for the East Norfolk Railway Company that opened the line from Norwich in 1880. The station building was in continuous use until British Rail ceased passenger traffic in the 1950s, however, freight traffic continued until 1982. The old track was later removed but a new, 15-inch, narrow gauge track was laid in 1990 when The Bure Valley Railway opened. This popular seasonal attraction with trains running between Wroxham and Aylsham has brought the old Victorian station back to life and staying here is really special.
Coltishall is ideally placed between the fine city of Norwich and the North Norfolk coast. It is close to Wroxham and the heart of the Norfolk broads with fishing, boating and a wide choice of good pubs, food and entertainment nearby.
The Old Railway Station first opened as a Bed & Breakfast in 1985 and was purchased in 2001 by the present owner who has made many improvements including new en-suite bedrooms and better guest facilities. It is the ideal location for a really peaceful weekend break with perhaps some walking, cycling or bird watching on the Broads. You may well want to stay longer and take in a visit to Norwich or the coast and see some of the many attractions of this lovely part of Norfolk. Whatever your plans, The Old Railway Station Bed & Breakfast at Coltishall is waiting to welcome you.
