Itinerary

Day 1

We depart by executive coach from our designated pick up points and en route to our hotel we visit the National Trust’s Anglesey Abbey, Garden & Lode Mill near Cambridge. This Jacobean style house built on the site of a 12th century Augustinian priory contains a priceless art collection and one of the National Trust’s largest collections of clocks. We continue to 3* The George Hotel in Norwich for a four night stay on half board basis.

Day 2

Our Blue Badge guide meets us at our hotel this morning and accompanies us throughout the day. This morning we enjoy a guided tour of Norwich, England’s best-preserved medieval city. Our tour takes us to sights such as the Norman castle and the City Hall, and incorporates a visit to the Norman cathedral, one of the finest in England with its magnificent cloisters and Cathedral Close. This afternoon we visit the National Trust’s Felbrigg Hall, a 17th century country house containing original 18th century furniture and one of the largest collections of Grand Tour paintings by a single artist.

Day 3

The Sandringham Estate is our destination this morning with our Blue Badge guide, set in 60 acres of splendid gardens and the much loved country retreat of Her Majesty the Queen. Built for Edward VII in 1870 the property was once described as ‘Britain’s most comfortable house’ and the museum houses extraordinary collections of royal vehicles, rare ceramics, photographs and memorabilia. We visit the National Trust’s Oxburgh Hall this afternoon, a moated manor house with a Tudor gatehouse and accessible Priest’s Hole. Built by the Bedingfeld family who still live here, the rooms show the development from medieval austerity to Victorian comfort and include a display of embroidery by Mary Queen of Scots and Bess of Hardwick.

Day 4

This morning we enjoy a one-way narrow-gauge railway excursion from Aylsham to Wroxham on the scenic Bure Valley Railway, and then at Wroxham a short cruise on the Norfolk Broads. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Cromer.

Day 5

After checking out of our hotel this morning and en route home, we spend some time at leisure in Ely. You may choose to visit Ely Cathedral, known locally as ‘The Ship of the Fens’ and internationally famous for its Octagon and Lantern Towers. Taking carefully selected comfort stops en route we then return back to our original pick up points.
