Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth

Having been a flourishing coastal resort since 1760, the once major fishing port of Great Yarmouth has perfected the seaside experience down to a tee. With miles of golden sands and a great range of attractions, the seaside resort of Great Yarmouth is always a popular choice for groups. Our tour features the impressive Hoveton Hall Gardens, a steam train journey, a Broads cruise, Shire horses and, of course, the beautiful beaches of Great Yarmouth and Cromer.

Your Itinerary

Monday 5th: We depart during the morning and travel east across the country to Great Yarmouth arriving at our hotel. Welcome tea and coffee will be served on arrival.

Tuesday 6th: This morning, we visit the beautiful Hoveton Hall Gardens, made up of several areas, all with their own unique characteristics. Gardens to enjoy include the Spider walled garden, the old kitchen garden, the Glass House, the Woodland Walk, the Kidney Lake and the Magnolia Garden and Lake. In the afternoon, we spend free time in nearby Cromer, one of Norfolk’s classic seaside towns, before visiting the Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary where we meet the gentle giant Shire horses.

Wednesday 7th: Today, we spend time at leisure in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk’s premier coastal town and home to 15 miles of golden, sandy beaches. Some of the resort’s many attractions include the Time and Tide Museum, where we can wander down a typical 1913 ‘Row’ and see inside the homes of local fishermen, and the award winning Merrivale Model Village, Railway and Gardens, set over an acre of landscaped gardens with streams and waterfalls.

Thursday 8th: This morning we enjoy a 45 minute steam train journey on the Bure Valley Railway through the beautiful Norfolk countryside. On arrival in Wroxham, we disembark and take a leisurely 15 minute stroll to Wroxham Bridge, from where we begin the next stage of our journey, a 90 minute circular cruise of the Norfolk Broads, arriving back at Wroxham Bridge at 1.00pm. We spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing back in Great Yarmouth.

Friday 9th: Sadly after breakfast we bid farewell to Great Yarmouth and begin our journey homeward.
