Steam in Miniature weekend

Sat 13 Aug 2016 to Sun 14 Aug 2016

Later in the summer Bressingham’s annual Steam in Miniature weekend will come around again where working scale models of steam locomotion are on show.

Ranging from the large and decorative engines used by fairground showmen and the travelling fairs to the more humble road rollers used to maintain the highways and by-ways.

Scales range from 2½ inches to the foot to the larger models of approximately half the size of the originals - A massive treat for any closet modeller or people who like to pretend they’re giants!

The East Anglian Garden Railway Show

Sat 13 Aug 2016

Join us for The East Anglian Garden Railway Show. We will have Trade Stands for all you enthusiast and Layouts Including Live Steam.

Smell the Fragrant Garden situated next to the picnic area, where visitors can enjoy flowers and fragrance throughout the summer.

Relax in our Summer Garden with it high grasses, a spectacular backdrop to colourful summer-flowering perennials which drift among them and then perhaps a stroll through the cool of Adrian’s Wood.
