Bure Valley Railway & Path

Thought to be the only traffic-free path in Britain that runs alongside the entire nine mile length of the track from Aylsham to Wroxham taking walkers and cyclists through some stunningly beautiful English countryside.

Opening Times

The Bure Valley Path for cycling and walking, is a nine-mile route through the picturesque Bure Valley between historic Aylsham and Wroxham in the heart of the Broads. It follows the narrow-gauge Bure Valley Railway and with its scheduled services you can visit the picturesque villages at Brampton, Buxton and Coltishall on request. Bikes can be accommodated (subject to space).

Linking with the Marriott’s Way at Aylsham.

Owned and managed by Broadland District Council, the path runs alongside the entire length of the narrow gauge Bure Valley Railway.

So whether you’re hopping on and off the Bure Valley Railway or taking a longer trip, the Bure Valley Path is a great trail to discover. And with the Bittern Line train (Norwich to Sheringham) stopping at Hoveton and Wroxham it’s easy to leave the car behind.

Parking: In Hoveton or nearby Wroxham.
