Norfolk Broads & Rails Description
The county of Norfolk is known for the ‘Broads’, a National Park with over 125 miles of lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside. We enjoy trips on and around these peaceful broads, spend time in the historic city of Norwich and Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens.
Norfolk Broads & Rails Itinerary
Sunday We leave Cornwall in the morning and sit back and enjoy the journey to Norwich.
Monday Our day begins in Wroxham. Here we join our boat for a cruise of The Broads, a mass of scenic waterways and rare wildlife. We then travel through some of the delightful and traditional Broads villages. In the afternoon we have a visit to the seaside at the resort of Great Yarmouth.
Tuesday Today we take you into the heart of Norwich to take time to see one of the most attractive cities in the UK. The centre is easy to explore and is a wonderful fusion of the modern and historic.
Wednesday This morning we have a short stop for coffee in the town of Thetford before a full afternoon at the excellent Bressigham Steam Museum and Gardens. Sitting in the tranquillity of rural Norfolk, this is one of Europe’s leading steam collections. Take a trip on one of the four railways or have a ride on the Gallopers before browsing some of the stage sets from the TV series Dad’s Army and enjoying the wonderful gardens.
Thursday Our day begins with a visit to Cromer, on the north coast of Norfolk, to feel its timeless charm. We then continue to Sheringham where we enjoy the sea air and a steam train ride on the Poppy Line from Sheringham to Holt, a pretty Georgian market town with lots of little alleyways to explore.
Friday After breakfast we leave Norwich and make our way home to Cornwall.
