On arrival, we disembark and take a leisurely 15 minute stroll to Wroxham Bridge, where we enjoy time for lunch. In the afternoon, we embark on the next stage of our journey, a 90 minute circular cruise of the Norfolk Broads.
We then return to our hotel mid-afternoon.


Day 3

Sit back as the usually steam hauled train takes us through the Norfolk countryside.


Day 4

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
