Greater Anglia will run two special additional trains to help people get to and from the Cromer Carnival on Wednesday 16 August.

In the morning, alongside the normal timetabled services, Greater Anglia will run an additional service which will depart Norwich at 10.10 calling at Hoveton & Wroxham (10.25), North Walsham (10.39) and Cromer at 10.55.

An additional service will also run in the evening. It will leave Cromer at 22.09, calling at Roughton Road (22.16), Gunton (22.22), North Walsham (22.28), Worstead (22.33), Hoveton & Wroxham (22.40), Salhouse (22.45) and is due to arrive in Norwich at 22.57.

Throughout the day, some services have been retimed to provide longer dwell times at Cromer, given that more people will be getting on and off trains at the station because of the Carnival.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “Cromer Carnival is a popular event and we’re very pleased to run extra services so people can leave the car at home and take the train. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend, and there will be extra members of staff helping people with their journeys.

“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel and people travelling in groups of three or more can save money with GroupSave.

“Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”

Customers are advised to use the full length of trains and platforms.
