Greater Anglia is running additional train services to coincide with this year’s Cromer Carnival.

Extra trains will run between Norwich and Cromer and Sheringham and Cromer on Wednesday 21 August.

The carnival, which is in its 50th year, will take place just a short walk from the railway station.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “We’re very pleased to be supporting the Cromer Carnival by running extra trains.

“People can leave the car at home and take the train to Cromer to enjoy the carnival without worrying about driving and parking.”

To avoid queueing to buy tickets, passengers are advised to get them in advance online or via the Greater Anglia app to reduce their waiting times at the station. To save money, groups of three or more people can travel using Groupsave.

Greater Anglia is advising passengers that there are still likely to be large queues and very busy trains, because of the expected numbers of people. Extra staff will be on hand to help.

In addition to the normal timetable, the following services will also run:
