Norfolk is one of Britain's best kept holiday secrets. A county of undoubted scenic beauty, rich in wildlife, coastal delights and  historical treasures. No wonder it is such a favourite with Royalty! Enjoy a little railway heaven as we step back in time to an era of coal-fired steam engines puffing gently through the changing landscapes. We take a ride on the North Norfolk Railway and the peaceful Bure Valley Railway, together with a visit to Bressingham Steam Museum, home to a number of narrow gauge railways. And we include a visit to Sandringham House and Estate - beloved private retreat of the Royal Family.
