Feted for its big skies, glorious coast, tranquil rivers and crimson-red poppy fields, Norfolk is definitely a place to stop and enjoy the view. It’s also a place where life moves at a slower pace – even the royal family come here to wind down. Add to this the nostalgic feeling you get when travelling along heritage railways with a little steam train chugging away up front and you have all the ingredients for an unforgettable experience. We include no less than four different railway journeys on this short break, along with plenty of time to explore each destination, plus a cruise on the Norfolk Broads and a visit to Sandringham Estate. If the charms of Norfolk are good enough for the Queen, that’s a good enough reason for us to go!

DAY 1: NORFOLK

Make your own way to our hotel, where you meet our Tour Manager and enjoy a relaxing evening.

DAY 2: BURE VALLEY RAILWAY & THE SOUTHERN COMFORT MISSISSIPPI PADDLE BOAT

This morning we board our coach and travel to the market town of Aylsham to join the Bure Valley Railway. This delightful route takes in some of the most unspoilt countryside as it crosses 17 bridges and passes through idyllic villages to reach Wroxham, known as the ‘capital of the Norfolk Broads’. You have some free time here before we travel to the pretty village of Horning and board the Southern Comfort Mississippi Paddle Boat for a cruise on the Broads. The route takes us along the Bure river, passing thatched cottages, windmills and Norfolk reed beds, with an excellent commentary which also points out the water birds.

DAY 3: THE BITTERN LINE, THE POPPY LINE & CROMER

Today we are taken to Norwich station where we join the Bittern Line, named after the wading bird, for a journey to Sheringham. We then join the North Norfolk Railway, which is affectionately known as the Poppy Line, and enjoy a scenic trip along the coast and through heathland to the lovely town of Holt. After some free time here we head to the nearby seaside resort of Cromer and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

DAY 4: MID NORFOLK RAILWAY & SANDRINGHAM

Wymondham is our destination today where we join the Mid Norfolk Railway for a steam train journey through the heart of Norfolk countryside. We alight from the train in Dereham and are taken by coach to Sandringham, country residence of the Queen. Here you are free to admire the beautiful grounds and explore the house, which has knowledgeable guides on hand to talk to visitors.

DAY 5: HOME

After breakfast you are free to check out of our hotel and depart at leisure; you could even take the opportunity to explore some more of Norfolk.
