Norwich, Sandringham & The Broads

Norwich, Sandringham & The Broads

The charming city of Norwich is surrounded by picturesque Norfolk countryside and dominated by its splendid Castle and finely preserved Cathedral

The county of Norfolk boasts miles of unspoilt coastline, with important nature reserves, an abundance of picturesque villages, historic market towns, plus some nice seaside resorts. Norfolk has also had a long association with the Kings and Queens of England and Great Britain, from William I to Elizabeth II whose private home at Sandringham is in the west of the county.

 

DE VERE DUNSTON HALL (4 STAR)

Set amidst 150 acres of landscaped grounds on the outskirts of Norwich this delightful Elizabethan-style mansion was originally built in 1859 and has been lovingly restored to its former glory. The public areas include an elegantly decorated traditional bar and lounge, the La Fontaine Restaurant and a Brasserie grill. All the en-suite bedrooms feature satellite TV, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. Leisure facilities include indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, spa treatment rooms, plus an 18 hole golf course and driving range. Lift available.

 

EXCURSIONS INCLUDED

  • Enjoy a morning guided tour of Norwich, the most complete medieval city in Britain. Our tour will take in views of the castle, cathedral and various other sights as we learn about the city’s fascinating history. The afternoon is free to explore, perhaps visit the magnificent Norman cathedral, boasting the largest cloisters in England, the second tallest spire in the country. Much of the original city wall can still be seen along with merchant houses and quaint cobblestone lanes with half-timbered buildings.

  • We drive to historic Aylsham with its Georgian market place and numerous listed buildings. From here we take our seats on the Bure Valley Railway and commence a nine mile trip through picturesque countryside and quaint villages to arrive in Wroxham, the capital of The Norfolk Broads. We then take to the water for a cruise on the delightful Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and channels which combine to create a unique area of waterways.

 



  • We have an included visit to the Sandringham Estate, the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty the Queen. The house is set in some 24 hectares of stunning gardens and is probably the most famous stately home in Norfolk. With knowledgeable guides in every room of the house, a museum housing extraordinary collections of Royal vehicles, rare ceramics, photographs and memorabilia there is plenty to see and enjoy.
