Day 1 Sunday

The Broads are a network of mostly
navigable rivers and lakes in the counties of Norfolk and
Suffolk. The lakes, known as broads, were formed by the
flooding of peat workings and is an area of outstanding
natural beauty. We make our way first to Wroxham, the
centre for its leisure activities, then to nearby Horning to
embark on our included cruise in the afternoon. Look out
for cruisers, yachts and wherries from the purpose-built
double-deck ‘Southern Comfort’ on which we sail.
Transfer to Norwich for dinner, bed & breakfast.

Day 2 Monday

Sheringham is a pleasant coastal town
in North Norfolk and we travel from here to Holt, and
back, on the so-called ‘Poppy Line’ This Heritage Railway
carries very large numbers of passengers (approx
165,000 last year) who appreciate the country railway
atmosphere created by the large number of volunteers
(over 400) who keep everything running. Leave in the
afternoon to return to Essex.
