Great Yarmouth 5 Day Festive - New Beach Hotel
Great Yarmouth is East Anglia's top seaside venue, whose long sandy beach stretches for miles, backed by the Marine Parade and promenade, ideal for a gentle stroll or a ride on a horse-drawn landau. Visitors enjoy a huge range of attractions including the Model Village, a magnificent Sea Life Centre and the Hippodrome Circus, one of the longest running permanent circuses in England. Historically Great Yarmouth�s South Quay was a bustling port, described by Daniel Defoe as the finest quay in Europe with its many Georgian buildings. Those with an interest in history might also enjoy the Nelson Museum and the preserved Row Houses, unique to Great Yarmouth. There�s something for everyone in England�s far East!

Thursday (Alias Boxing Day) Half Day Excursion to Wroxham
This morning we visit Wroxham, known as 'the Capital of the Broads'. As its nickname suggests, it is busy with the hustle and bustle of tourists. On our return to Great Yarmouth we take a route which gives us an insight into 'The Broads', a system of lakes linked by rivers and one of England's most popular holiday areas especially amongst sailing enthusiasts. There are a dozen large broads, the longest being over four miles, and twelve smaller broads, all of them having been created by peat-digging in medieval times. Back at the hotel enjoy a pre-lunch glass of punch followed by Grand Boxing Day Lunch. Free afternoon followed by dinner and fancy dress farewell dance (please bring a costume).
