A Norfolk attraction is going full steam ahead with its new tour launching this spring. 

The Thursford Collection, near Fakenham, welcomes visitors to see the world's largest collection of steam engines and organs between April and September.

The complex is then transformed into a winter wonderland in November and December, where it hosts the world-famous Christmas Spectacular show.
