From the opening of The Pleasure Beach Great Yarmouth to stunning daffodil walks and family fun, Greater Anglia is encouraging people to get out and explore Norfolk by train this month.

To make it easier and even more convenient to travel by train, Greater Anglia has a range of great value fares available such as discounted Advance tickets, Ranger tickets and the Family & Friends Railcard.

You can save a small fortune on parking when you travel by train and avoid queues of traffic in the county’s tourist hot spots.

Here are some of the events happening in Norfolk in March which are accessible by train:

Daffodils at Hoveton Hall

Treat your mum to a free visit to the Hoveton Hall Estate’s gardens on Sunday 10 March to see the display of daffodils. Afternoon teas are also available in the café. Hoveton & Wroxham station is on the scenic Bittern Line railway which runs between Norwich and Cromer / Sheringham so you could spend the day exploring the entire line with a Bittern Line Ranger for just £12 per adult and half price for children.
