Norwich by Train

Stay for a day and catch a late-night service home, or stay awhile with no worries about car parking or traffic jams. It’s 100% leisure from the time you leave home.


Pull out of London from Liverpool Street, past the Olympic Village and you’ll soon be in wide, open countryside. Through ancient market towns like Ipswich and Colchester and onwards, sometimes skimming past water, other times through green fields. Relax, take time to enjoy a drink or read a book. Arrive refreshed and raring to explore our unique city – the street-food, department stores and leafy lanes of the centre are just a 10-minute stroll away from the station.
