Holt railway station is the current terminus of the North Norfolk Railway, and is a new-build station built on the site on the proposed, but never built, Blakeney branch junction.

It was opened in 1987. Its station building once belonged to Stalham railway station, but was moved and reconstructed on site.[1] It is located a few hundred metres from the site of the historic Holt railway station, which had been closed in 1964 by British Railways.

William Marriott Museum[edit]

The William Marriott Museum is located in the goods shed at the station. Operated by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway Society, the museum features railroad artifacts and memorabilia, as well as historic buildings, locomotives, rolling stock and a historic signalling system. The museum is open on days when the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway is operating.
