Little Trains of Norfolk

Feted for its wide skies, glorious coastline, tranquil rivers and crimson-red poppy fields, Norfolk is the perfect place to stop and enjoy the view. It’s somewhere that life moves at a slower pace – even the royal family come here to wind down. Add to this the nostalgic feeling of travelling along heritage railways with a little steam train chugging away and you’ll have all ingredients required for an unforgettable experience. We include no less than 4 different railway journeys on this short break, along with plenty of time to explore each destination. But it doesn’t stop there - join a cruise on the Norfolk Broads and a visit to Sandringham Estate.

Itinerary

Overview

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

Includes Dinner

Overview

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. From here, we travel to the medieval city of Norwich where there’s free time to explore the narrow lanes and speciality shops as well as the impressive castle and Cathedral, a fine example of Romanesque architecture.
