Norfolk… a Royal Retreat
With the nation's interest in the Royal Family having grown in recent years, we have enhanced our popular Norfolk Broads tour and included a visit to Sandringham Estate, Her Majesty's Norfolk retreat. This, together with a nostalgic railway journey and Broads cruise, provides a truly enjoyable tour. Tours are based upon Thursday or Friday hotel arrival.
Sandringham • Norwich • Norfolk Broads • Bure Valley Steam Railway
Day 1 Travel to your hotel near Norwich.
Day 2 Morning guided tour of Norwich, by coach and on foot. This afternoon, the highlight of the tour is a visit to Sandringham house, gardens and museum (usually open from Easter and closed on certain days in July: ask us for details). Built for Edward VII, Sandringham has passed through generations of royals but the decor remains true to its Edwardian heritage. The fascinating museum is home to a number of vintage royal vehicles and commemorative china.
Day 3 Explore the beautiful Broads with a journey on the Bure Valley Steam Railway before transferring to Wroxham Bridge for a leisurely Broads cruise. Enjoy an afternoon beside the seaside with a trip to the coastal resort of Great Yarmouth and its 'Golden Mile' of attractions or the quieter resort of Cromer.
Day 4 Homeward journey.
