Norfolk Autumn Explorer
BU4AEHJoin us on this long weekend Autumn break, as we head to the lovely East Anglian county of Norfolk to explore some of the highlights of this historic region, with one of the most complete medieval cities in the country plus iconic coastal towns.
You'll discover the delightful city of Norwich with a guided walking tour and free time to do your own thing. There is plenty to explore in this ancient city, from the cathedral with its ornate cloisters and the city’s imposing gates, to Norwich Castle, the Museum of Norwich and various shopping opportunities.
Also spend a day enjoying the picturesque Norfolk Coast, visiting Norfolk's classic seaside towns of Great Yarmouth and Cromer. The grand old resort of Great Yarmouth is known for its long sandy beach and a great range of attractions including its 'Golden Mile'. The lovely coastal resort of Cromer is famous for its tasty crabs, cliff top promenade and pier where you could have a cuppa in the Pavilion Theatre.
Your comfortable hotel provides a great base from which to explore the area, and also offers a pool, steam room and well equipped gym.

NorwichINCLUDED Visitor Destination
Norwich is a wonderful fusion of the modern and historic, one complementing the other. Like any great city its centre is easy to walk around and has a river at its heart. As well as being the most complete medieval city in the UK, it has a flourishing arts, music and cultural scene, superb independent as well as High Street shopping, lively restaurants, bars and nightlife and a heritage that is a delight to explore. It was also England's first UNESCO City of Literature – this is a city of stories and also the only UK city set in the middle of a National Park, the Norfolk Broads.

Great YarmouthGreat Yarmouth is Norfolk’s third most populous place. Its fishing industry, mainly for herring, shrank after the mid-20th century and has all but ended. North Sea oil from the 1960s brought an oil-rig supply industry that services offshore natural gas rigs. More recent offshore wind power and other renewable energy have led to further services. Yarmouth has been a resort since 1760 and a gateway from the Norfolk Broads to the North Sea. Holiday-making rose when a railway opened in 1844, giving easier, cheaper access and bringing some settlement. Wellington Pier opened in 1854 and Britannia Pier in 1858. Through the 20th century, Yarmouth boomed as a resort, with a promenade, pubs, trams, fish-and-chip shops and theatres, and the Pleasure Beach, the Sea Life Centre, the Hippodrome Circus and the Time and Tide Museum, and a Victorian seaside Winter Garden in cast iron and glass.
CromerCromer is a classic North Norfolk seaside town, situated on a cliff-top overlooking fine sandy beaches. Cromer Pier has survived despite bad damage over the years and is a traditional seaside pier with a Lifeboat Station and Pavilion Theatre, which still stages end of pier shows. Developed into a significant resort by the late Victorians, when healthy breezes were sought, the architecture of the time lends the town a feel of elegant grandeur. Cromer church dominates the town with the tallest tower in Norfolk. The streets and alleys are crammed with shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes for you to explore - a browser's delight!
