Pensthorpe Natural Park & Railway

A view of plants at Pensthrope park

Departing Suffolk & Essex - Combine a ride on the Mid Norfolk Railway with a lunch and visit to Pensthorpe Natural Park.

Today we will make our way to Wymondham Station for your journey on the Mid-Norfolk Railway to Dereham, where you will have a light lunch.


After lunch you will depart Dereham station for a trip to Pensthorpe Natural Park where you will have free time to explore. With over 700 acres of diverse habitats, the former home of BBC Springwatch brings together the beauty of the natural world with it’s acres of beautiful lakes, woodland walks and four stunning gardens - all of which are home to an array of birds and wildlife, including rare and endangered species such as Red Squirrels, Corncrakes, Turtle Doves and Cranes.


Absorb the structural beauty of the Millennium Garden, designed by world-renowned plantsman Piet Oudolf; admire the sculptures as you meander through the Wave Garden; hop on the behind-the-scenes Pensthorpe Explorer tour and join Pensthorpe’s resident experts for the daily bird feed.
