Cycling

The path alongside the Bure Valley Railway provides a nine mile long traffic free cycle route between Aylsham and Wroxham.

The line is approximately 2 miles from the Norfolk Broads Cycling Centre and can be reached by cycling along a quiet country lane, joining at a level crossing.

The railway and adjacent path runs through beautiful quiet countryside disturbed only by the wildlife and the friendly whistle of a passing train!

Being a railway the route does not have any steep gradients and so is a relaxing and enjoyable cycle route.

At Buxton the path and railway cross the River Bure on a Girder bridge with excellent views to either side. At Buxton Station is a small grassed area adjacent to the car park with a picnic bench an ideal spot to break your ride.

Just outside Aylsham the railway passes through a tunnel underneath the A140. The path goes above and requires a crossing of the A140. This can be a very busy road with fast traffic, please take care!!

Upon arrival at Aylsham Station why not enjoy a refreshing drink or a bite to eat at the Whistlestop Café.

Cycle racks are provided outside the Whistlestop Café on Aylsham Station.

Before setting off on your return journey why not have a look around the workshops or watch a train depart on its journey to Wroxham.

Should you not wish to cycle back, but take your cycles on the train, cycles are accepted on our trains. A charge for cycles does apply.

Please be aware that at peak holiday times, space is limited and we may be unable to carry cycles.
