Golden Sands of Norfolk

 

Originally famed for its smoked herring, and the birthplace of the fish finger, the seaside resort of Great Yarmouth has come a long way from its fishing port heritage to become the UK’s third most popular holiday destination, and with its golden beaches, broads, heritage and beautiful countryside, it’s not hard to understand why. 

 

The Bure Valley Railway is Norfolk’s longest Narrow-Gauge Steam Railway, built on the track bed of part of the former Great Eastern Railway.  The nine-mile line runs from the stunning Bure Valley countryside to the meandering River Bure through meadowland and picturesque villages.   As part of this tour, you will enjoy both rail and waterway travel with a ninety-minute circular cruise of the Norfolk Broads.  The Broads are referred to as ‘Britain’s Magical Waterland’ and is as abundant in history and folklore as it is in wildlife – now with the status of a National Park, the Broads are made up of thirty shallow lakes which are connected by rivers and dykes that form approximately two-hundred miles of tranquil waterways. 

Norfolk has undoubtedly been a very self-sufficient county throughout the years, from working the land to living off it, and the Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary pays tribute and raises awareness to this.  With daily demonstrations, you can see the amazing heavy horses working, cultivating and harrowing as they would have in ages past.  There is also a collection of machinery from throughout the ages, lovingly restored and some even in working order to represent the trials, tribulations and triumphs of man vs nature.  Founded in 1995 to help and campaign for animals in need, their mission is to bring public awareness to the suffering that animals endure due to the intensive factory farming industry.

This morning we visit elegant Felbrigg Hall, full of opulence and homeliness. The house is beautifully furnished and features stained glass windows dating back to the 15th century, and has a stunning walled garden. In the afternoon, we spend free time in nearby Cromer, one of Norfolk's classic seaside towns, before visiting the Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary where we meet the gentle giant Shire horses.

Day 3

Today, we spend time at leisure in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk's premier coastal town and home to 15 miles of golden, sandy beaches. Some of the resort's many attractions include the Time and Tide Museum, where we can wander down a typical 1913 'Row' and see inside the homes of local fishermen, and the award winning Merrivale Model Village, Railway and Gardens, set over an acre of landscaped gardens with streams and waterfalls.

Day 4

This morning we enjoy a 45 minute steam train journey on the Bure Valley Railway through the beautiful Norfolk countryside. On arrival in Wroxham, we disembark and take a leisurely 15 minute stroll to Wroxham Bridge, from where we begin the next stage of our journey, a 90 minute circular cruise of the Norfolk Broads, arriving back at Wroxham Bridge at 1.00 pm. We spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing back in Great Yarmouth.
