Suggested itinerary by coach
Travel to hotel
Depending on where you are travelling from, why not stop off at Springfields Outlet Centre. Time to relax and settle in the hotel before dinner.
St Georges Distillery and Bressingham Steam and Gardens
This morning we visit St Georges Distillery, home to the English Whisky Company. The distillery was designed and built by the Nelstrop family for the specific purpose of producing the finest English single malt whisky. Our guided tour includes arrival tea or coffee, tour of the distilling floor and No.1 Warehouse, and a taste of some of the single malts. In the afternoon we call into Bressingham Steam and Gardens where we can admire the collections of vintage locomotives and a National Dad’s Army collection, plus there are a number of model railway journeys to choose from (tickets can be purchased separately). The train ride is a great way to appreciate the views over the 17 acres of gardens.
Sandringham and Norfolk Lavender
This morning we travel to Sandringham House, the much-loved country retreat of the Queen. A highlight is the opportunity to see the actual rooms where the Queen spends time when she’s in residence. Don’t miss the fascinating museum and the collection of vintage and recently retired royal motor cars. We then travel the short distance to Norfolk Lavender, famous for its gardens, oil distillery, national lavender collection and herb garden.
The “Poppy Line” and Cromer
Today we head to the picturesque north Norfolk coast. Our first stop is the bustling seaside town and holiday resort of Cromer where there’s plenty of time to explore the narrow twisting street or take a walk along the pier for a cuppa in the Pavilion Theatre. In the afternoon we take a 10-mile round trip on the North Norfolk Railway. This heritage railway is known as the ‘Poppy Line’, a description given to the railway because of the many fields of poppies the line passes through.
After breakfast start your journey home. Ask a member of the Greatdays team for suggestions.
