This delightful break combines the beauty of this wonderful area of the country with the history of Norwich and a fascinating visit to Sandringham House. On the east coast of England, Norfolk has 90 miles of unspoilt coastline, beautiful countryside, the unique Broads National Park, forests and heathland and picturesque market towns. You can’t come to this area without a trip on The Broads!
We have added a visit to the magnificent Holkham Hall near the North Norfolk coast and a visit to Cromer.
The county town of Norwich has a fantastic heritage with long trade links, historical sights and architecture and excellent shopping. A great destination for a holiday and very popular with our customers.

Fun day out today. We head to Aylsham for a nostalgic 9 mile steam hauled train trip through the picturesque Norfolk countryside. After arriving in Wroxham we board our pleasure boat for a 1½ hour cruise on the unique Norfolk Broads and hopefully spotting some wildlife. Free time in Wroxham after – a lovely riverside aspect and some good shops. Returning for free time in Norwich. Train/boat included.
