Your Itinerary

Thursday 15th: Depart from your home area travelling to Norfolk and arriving late
afternoon.

Friday 16th: Today we visit Sandringham, much loved country retreat of Her Majesty The
Queen. The house, set in 24 hectares of stunning gardens has been the private home of
four generations of British monarchy and is a friendly and informal place to visit, with
knowledgeable guides in every room of the house and acres of beautiful gardens to
explore.

Saturday 17th: We travel to the resort of Cromer, on the north coast of Norfolk. After break
we continue to Sheringham, where we enjoy the sea air and a train ride, this time a steam
train on the Poppy Line, from Sheringham to Holt, a pretty Georgian market town with lots
of little alleyways to explore.

Sunday 18th: Today we combine a nostalgic steam train ride with a cruise on the Norfolk
Broads. We begin at Aylsham where we join the Bure Valley Railway for the 9 miles ride to
Wroxham. At Wroxham we join the boat for a cruise around the Broads, and we then travel
through some of the delightful Broads villages, such as Woodbastwick, with its diminutive
green and thatched cottages.

Monday 19th: Following breakfast we return home with a suitable stop en-route.
