Since its debut in 2019, The Norfolk Lights Express has become firmly established as a favourite seasonal treat. As your train steams from Sheringham to Holt and back, you will literally see the countryside adjoining the track in a whole new light as the onboard lights shine on to the scenery in a series of changing colours. During the 5 mile journey to Holt you'll pass around 10 colourful lit-up dioramas on the lineside or dramatically set in the woods adjoining the track. These create an intriguing story which is brought to life by the on-board narration and music.

The Norfolk Lights Express departs from Sheringham and steams its way up the line of the North Norfolk Railway to Holt. Along the way, you'll see beautiful lineside displays that tell a unique tale, and the on-train lighting will shine on to the stunning North Norfolk countryside making it look like you've never seen it before!

Your journey will break with an intermission at Holt, giving you the option to hop off and take photographs with the train or to visit the onboard bar.

The historic locomotive will then switch ends ready to return you to Sheringham. On the way back, Part 2 of the show provides the opportunity to enjoy the lineside displays one more time with the on-board soundtrack complete with some seasonal music adding to the spectacle.

The Old Luggage buffet will be open for you to purchase hot soup, hot drinks, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, delicious homemade cakes and savoury refreshments. A licensed bar will also be on board each train and can be visited before departure and during the intermission.
