Today we discover the true flavour of Norfolk, stepping back in time to visit the charming towns and peaceful countryside that makes this terrific county such an attraction.

Arriving in the small market town of Wymondham, we travel by coach to Aylsham for a journey on the Bure Valley Railway to Wroxham.

The scenic journey through the beautiful Bure Valley countryside is hauled by a restored steam engine and takes us into the heart of the Norfolk Broads, where we enjoy a boat cruise along the wide and picturesque waterways that provide the habitat for a stunning array of wildlife, much of it unique to Norfolk.
