Romantic Journeys of Norfolk

Sweeping beaches and the tranquil Norfolk Broads offer a fine destination for groups and it’s no wonder it’s a favourite home to the Queen and the Royal Family. Our itinerary takes in Sandringham, a steam train journey and a cruise on the Norfolk Broads with plenty of time to relax.

PACKAGED ITINERARY

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Bure Valley Railway, Norfolk Broads & Great Yarmouth
Our day starts with a visit to the Bure Valley Railway and a 45 minute journey by steam train through the picturesque Norfolk countryside to Wroxham. On arrival, we disembark and take a leisurely 15 minute stroll to Wroxham Bridge, from where we embark on the next stage of our journey, a 90 minute circular cruise of the Norfolk Broads arriving back at Wroxham Bridge at 1.00 pm. We can enjoy a relaxed lunch before exploring Wroxham and returning to our hotel mid-afternoon.

Day 3 Mid Norfolk Railway & Sandringham
Today we travel to the market town of Wymondham to board the Heart of Norfolk Heritage Railway for a one-way, 11 mile journey to Dereham. Sit back as the usually steam hauled train takes us through the Norfolk countryside. This afternoon, we make our way to Sandringham, the much loved country retreat of Her Majesty, The Queen. The house, set in 24 hectares of stunning gardens, has knowledgeable guides in every room and the museum houses collections of Royal vehicles, rare ceramics, photographs and memorabilia. We spend the day exploring the house, gardens, museum and Visitor Centre. Please note, the Mid Norfolk Railway journey is only available until the end of September. An alternative attraction will be available from October onwards.

Day 4 Great Yarmouth & Norwich
This morning we have free time to enjoy the classic Norfolk seaside town of Great Yarmouth, known for its long sandy beach. Aside from the Pleasure Beach, we can choose from the Time and Tide Museum, which details local history or the Nelson Museum, which as the name suggests, focuses on Admiral Lord Nelson. There is also Merrivale Model Village if the weather is on our side. For lunch we travel to Norwich. Having sated our hunger there is plenty to explore in this medieval city, from the cathedral with its ornate cloisters and the city’s imposing gates, which lead to a once Saxon marketplace, to the Museum of Norwich and shopping opportunities.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
