Discover three of Norfolk's most scenic railway lines, the Bure Valley Railway, the Mid-Norfolk Railway, and the North Norfolk Railway, on a tour that showcases some of the most beautiful areas of this idyllic county at Christmas, all from your base near historic Norwich.
Arrive in Norwich today, where your Tour Manager is waiting to meet you at the 4-Star Barnham Broom Hotel, located in a lovely village outside of the main city of Norwich. We dine in the hotel this evening.
On Day 2, we venture into Norwich to enjoy a guided tour of some of the most famed sights of the city, including the magnificent cathedral. This afternoon, you are at leisure to continue exploring Norwich. The city boasts of an incredible heritage, with over 1,500 years of history to recommend it.
Enjoy a fabulous Christmas Day at leisure today, with plenty of food and optional festivities to inspire and improve your festive mood. After an elegant Bucks Fizz breakfast, perhaps take the time to explore the pretty scenery around the village, and make plenty of room for lunch. Before lunch, there is a drinks reception as well as a visit from Santa, and lunch is served with all of the trimmings. This afternoon, there is the option to enjoy a game of Bingo, and in the evening, we enjoy a light buffet meal ahead of a quiz night.
Enjoy an exciting Boxing Day on board the North Norfolk Railway. We begin by taking a coach to Sherringham, transferring to the station, then boarding the steam-hauled locomotive for a return journey on the festive Mince Pie service. Delight in the beauty of the passing Norwich scenery as you wind your way through the picturesque countryside.
There is time for lunch here, before we board a coach and transfer to Fairhaven Woodland Garden. This incredible oasis of peace and greenery is a truly marvellous way to lose yourself in the beauty of nature, and we take a guided tour around, learning about the flora that flourishes here.
Today, we venture to Wroxham on board the Bure Valley Railway, taking us through the lovely Bure Valley on our way. From here, we transfer by coach to Wymondham for a journey on the Mid-Norfolk Railway to Dereham, a delightfully quaint little town which epitomises the small-town beauty of Norwich. After breakfast on Day 6, our tour comes to an end, and you are free to depart at your leisure.
