“The gardens have changed each time we come and get better and better, lovely!”

The Steam museum and Gardens

Bressingham Gardens and Steam Experience is a unique combination arising out of the passions of founder Alan Bloom, whose profession of nurseryman and gardener and hobby of a steam powered collection of trains and traction engines led to the leisure destination of Bressingham Gardens and Steam Museum (The Steam Museum is now a charitable trust).

Here families with children can enjoy train rides into the Waveney woodland and valley and around Alan Bloom’s Dell Garden, ride on the Victorian Roundabout, the Gallopers or visit the Dad’s Army reconstruction of Warmington on Sea as shown in the ever popular TV series Dad’s Army.
