DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Today we travel to our hotel via a visit to the Lincolnshire market town of Spalding.
Day 2 – This afternoon we visit Sandringham Estate, the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Set in 24-hectares of stunning gardens and woodland, the house is perhaps the most famous stately home in Norfolk. Admission to the house, with a multi-media tour, the magnificent gardens and the transport museum are all included.
Day 3 – Enjoy free time to explore the elegant resort of Hunstanton, renowned for its unique striped cliffs and magnificent sunsets, made special by its position as the only west-facing resort on the East coast. The seaside town began as a purpose-built resort in 1846 and retains its Victorian charm and character to this day, remaining a popular holiday destination.
Day 4 – After breakfast we visit the neighbouring coastal resorts of Cromer and Sheringham for the annual Crab and Lobster festival, a lively celebration of the best of the culinary delights on the north Norfolk coast. With over 50 local craft, food and drink stalls, cookery demonstrations and fun entertainment, today is guaranteed to be one of the highlights of your holiday.
Day 5 – This morning we visit Burnham Market regarded as north Norfolk’s loveliest village and popular haunt of the rich and famous, not to mention The Royals, evidence of which can be seen by the “By Royal Appointment” signs above some of the doorways of the array of independent shops. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure in resort.
Day 6 – Today we visit the charming seaside resort of Wells-next-the-Sea. After some free time to explore the narrow lanes with chic shops, eateries and art galleries, we board the Wells & Walsingham Light Railway, the world’s smallest public railway, for a nostalgic journey amidst beautiful countryside and wildlife. We are accompanied by the unmistakable sound and smell of steam travel en route to Walsingham, one of the most extraordinary villages in the British Isles, steeped in history with its collection of rare half-timbered medieval buildings and considered a holy pilgrimage place for more than 1,000 years. There will be free time to explore the village, a beautiful and quiet place that’s home to a ruined abbey, an Orthodox church, and several shops that sell religious mementos, before returning to the hotel.
Day 7 – This morning we pay a short visit to Norfolk Lavender animal centre before we begin our journey home with comfort stops on the way
