5 Day Coach Holiday

This delightfully varied holiday takes in an ancient city along with traditional seaside resorts and a wonderfully unforgettable day out on the Norfolk Broads. Discover eye-catching Norwich, home to a Norman castle that was founded by William the Conqueror, as well as a medley of medieval lanes, Tudor dwellings and antique shops. Perhaps visit English Heritage’s Plantation Garden and don’t miss the grand  cathedral. On another day, it’s beaches and promenades as we visit Cromer, a picturesque coastal town where you’ll find one of Banksy’s ‘Great British Spraycation’ artworks on its sea wall, showing a group of hermit crabs. We also visit Victorian Sheringham, a former fishing village and now an enchanting resort with friendly tearooms. A special treasure will be our cruise along the River Bure aboard the Southern Comfort Mississippi Paddle Boat, followed by free time in Wroxham, then a steam train ride through the gorgeous Bure Valley.

Your Excursions

Norwich 
Built around an impressive Norman castle, Norwich is a compact, easy to explore city with an enchanting jumble of medieval alleyways, almost every one of which Norwich tells a story. With historic churches, a host of attractions, Victorian and Georgian architecture as well as the magnificent cathedral, you’ll find lots to see and do. Along cobbled Elm Hill you’ll find eye-catching half-timbered Tudor dwellings, inviting antique shops and 
tearooms. Perhaps visit Plantation Garden and don’t miss the 900-year-old castle, home to a museum and art gallery. 
Cromer & Sheringham
We head to Cromer, a traditional seaside resort on the Norfolk coast with a sand and shingle beach. Perhaps visit the Grade II listed pier, where you’ll find a lifeboat station and a Pavilion Theatre. The town’s 14th century St Peter & Paul church is unmissable with its 160 foot tower piercing the sky. Next to the church is Cromer Museum, housed in a fisherman’s cottage with displays of historic photographs and an incredible collection of 
fossils. Later, we move on to Sheringham, a quaint little resort with a seafront museum that tells the town’s history through its people and boats. 
Norfolk Broads Cruise & Bure Valley Railway 
We head to the adorable village of Horning to board the double deck Southern Comfort Mississippi Paddle Boat for a memorable river experience. We sail along the River Bure, through the village and out to Ranworth Broad passing thatched cottages, windmills and reed beds while listening to commentary. Afterwards, we continue to Wroxham for free time. Later, it’s all aboard the nostalgic Bure Valley Railway steam train for a spectacular nine-mile ride through the picture postcard Norfolk countryside to Aylsham – truly a day to remember!
