Little Boats & Trains of Norfolk

Bure Valley Railway, Wroxham Broad Cruise, The Poppy Line, Sandringham House, Cromer & Norwich

Norfolk is one of England’s most picturesque counties and this delightful tour is designed to make the most of your visit by including some of the region’s most notable attractions. This tour is based in the historic city of Norwich, known as the city of churches having more than thirty within its medieval narrow streets and not forgetting the Cathedral of Holy Trinity with its magnificent 315 ft spire. The Norman Keep of Norwich Castle dominates the hill and is surrounded by a moat which has been converted into attractive gardens, whilst the museum has some imaginative tableaux of historical scenes. During your stay ensure you visit Swan Lane, one of Norwich’s medieval streets, now a pedestrian shopping centre.
