The Bure Valley Railway offers full access to disabled passengers in wheelchairs.
Both Aylsham and Wroxham stations are all on the one level, including shops, toilets, café, platforms and even the workshops at Aylsham.
Along with our standard carriage fleet, there are six specially designed coaches which can carry wheelchairs easily. Each has a special seating arrangement plus double doors on both sides and detachable ramps. When the ordinary seats are down, these carriages have the same carrying capacity as regular carriages, but when the seats are raised they can each accommodate four manual wheelchairs securely.
Other types of wheelchair may be carried depending on their size.
When the BVR is running a full three-train service, every train normally has two of these coaches, giving disabled passengers a completely free choice of which train to catch.
The Bure Valley Railway is proud to be probably the first railway of any sort in the region to provide six carriages in which wheelchair-bound people of any age can be accommodated in comfort and security, along with their fellow passengers, friends and family.
Small electric scooters or wheelchairs can be accomodated within our accessible carriages provided they are not too large, or heavy and can be easily manoeuvred onboard a rail carriage without the help of railway staff to lift them into position.
If travelling on the combined Train and Boat package, then please seek advise at time of booking, certain boats cannot accept electric scooters, or may need seats to be removed from the deck, prior to boarding.
