Big skies, sweeping beaches and the tranquil Norfolk Broads offer a fine destination and it’s no wonder it's a favourite home to the Queen and the Royal Family. Our new itinerary takes in Sandringham, a steam train journey, a cruise on the Norfolk Broads, Cromer and Great Yarmouth.
Day 1 After our local pick-ups we travel to Bury St Edmunds for our lunch stop. We then continue our journey to Norfolk and arrive at Dunstan Hall with time to relax before dinner.
Day 2 This morning 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.
The main ground floor rooms of the house, regularly used by the Royal Family, are open to the public and the decor and contents remain much the same as they were in Edwardian times. We spend the day exploring the house, gardens, museum and visitor centre.
Day 3 Our day starts with a visit to the Bure Valley Railway. Departing at 10am, we will enjoy a 45 minute journey by steam train through the picturesque Norfolk countryside to Wroxham. On arrival at Wroxham, we will disembark and meet our coach to take us to the next stage of our journey, on a 90 minute circular cruise of the beautiful Norfolk Broads. We will enjoy full on board commentary from our skipper before arriving back at Wroxham Bridge at 1pm.
In the afternoon, we will journey to Great Yarmouth where we will spend the afternoon at leisure exploring the resort.
Day 4 This morning we will visit the magnificent 25,000 acre Holkham Estate located in a stunning location on the north Norfolk coast. Our visit will include a one hour visit to the Hall, one hour Field to Fork Experience and one hour to visit the Walled Garden.
In the afternoon, we will enjoy a coastal drive to Cromer where we will have free time to spend in this classic Norfolk seaside town with its traditional seaside pier.
Day 5 After breakfast we return home via the Suffolk Food Hall to enable you to purchase refreshments before we continue our homeward journey.
