I live in Cyprus but always shop at Great Eastern when I visit my holiday home in Norfolk, UK. They are the friendliest group of people you could hope to meet. Always happy to stop for a chat and when I can't find what I am looking for they go straight to it. I never spend a fortune in there but I always try to buy something in order to support what I see as my local model shop. Often an item that I enquired about on one visit will appear in stock on my next visit, so they listen to their customers and take action. Great people at Great Eastern, great model shop.

I visited this shop for the first time today - Came across it quite by accident as I was visiting the area and happened to spot it from the road. What a find! an excellent model railway shop with a vast range of OO and N gauge very well laid out in a spacious premises. They have a car park at the rear of the shop which was useful as it is located in a busy area on the ring road near a roundabout. The prices were good too - Very competitive with the large mail order companies. Helpful and friendly service. It was so nice to visit a proper railway retailer rather than a generic model shop with a bit of railway. I wish it were closer to my home but I will definitely make another visit when I am next in the area. Ps as a bonus there is pub opposite called heartsease where we had a great value meal!

It has been 25 years since I visited this shop and I wish I visited it sooner. It is an amazing place with such a friendly and helpful atmosphere led by anne (Director) ably assisted by her brother and the team. Their friendliness and hospitality makes you feel that you’re in their ’clubroom’ rather than a shop! another bonus is that there is another shop upstairs - train terrain which has recently moved in and will be developing their stock of American and continental models in various scales. I will certainly be returning - in a lot less than 25 years!!!

Excellent stock levels and a "Can do" Attitude. Their prices, unlike many who do not move with the times, are competitive with the big boys. So support a friendly local retailer folks!

An excellent shop, what a model shop should be like. Visited whilst on holiday, my wife and myself were given cups of tea each. Very good at relieving you of your hard earned cash. be careful when you exit the car park, I was almost hit by a reversing car.

Well worth the 90min trip nice and friendly people. Ann and rob took time out to talk to a new face, good stock new and second hand. You need to work on a better website guys but overall a good retailer.

Friendly shop with good stock levels and friendly staff. Good local shops nearby for other shopping so no excuses about it being 'out of the way!' also on a good bus route from the centre of norwich too.
