Take a journey off the beaten track this weekend, as Greater Anglia, tourism authorities, and bloggers have teamed up to encourage families to explore the region over the Easter Holidays.

The train operator is offering a special kids' fare which means that up to four can travel with an adult for just £2 return each.

Using the #railadventure hashtag, bloggers and their families have been exploring East Anglia by rail, and highlighting hidden gems that are just a train journey away.

Boredom busters suggested so far have included the North Norfolk Railway (Sheringham station) Somerleyton Hall (Somerleyton station), and Bure Valley Railway and Broads Tours boat trips (Hoveton & Wroxham Station).

Andy Camp, Greater Anglia's Commercial Director, commented: 'We're delighted to team up with bloggers, attractions and tourism organisations in East Anglia to highlight the great days out you can enjoy close to home, which are in such easy reach from our stations.
