Your Itinerary

Thursday 12th: Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to Norwich and arriving at Holiday Inn Hotel in time for dinner. Tea/coffee and biscuits served on arrival.

Friday 13th: This morning our destination is a visit to Sandringham House and Grounds, the Norfolk 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 friendly and informal place to visit, with knowledgeable guides in every room of the house and acres of beautiful gardens to explore. Here we have free time to explore and obtain lunch, late afternoon returning to the hotel.

Saturday 14th: 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 15th: 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 16th: After breakfast we leave and begin our homeward journey.
