A museum and restaurant in one. Watch the trains go by and stroll around the memorabilia. Wymondham Railway Station has been used for many film and television productions and when you visit you'll see why.

Looks very well done and although there were no steam trains running on the day we visited it was good to see things like the old crossing gates etc. A real joy.

We went on the steam train during the 1940's weekend in August.Everyone was dressed in theme (uniforms, land girls, conductors and the public) It was great fun.Not to be missed. Well done to all the volunteers.You could get out at every stop and look at the displays and stalls.

We didn't travel but had a nice chat to the volunteers about the history of the line and rolling stock. Had a walk along the platform and chatted to the driver, too. The diesel train is circa 1956; nearly as old as me! Will go back when we have more time

We visited the Station Bistro for Valentines Day. The food was great - we both had the fish and chips. The restaurant is set out like an old fashioned railway carriage.

Lovely atmosphere to sit inside or out for coffee, lunches or dinners. Good menu and excellent friendly staff. Frequented by many local regulars and visitors to the area. Lots of railway memorabilia.
