This new tour for 2018 provides a fantastic collection of excursions. A combination of a steam train ride, a back stage tour at Thursford, a visit to Royal Sandringham and a day exploring historic Norwich provides a truly exhilarating tour. Your seaside base at the Comfort Hotel in Great Yarmouth provides a tranquil backdrop to the action packed itinerary.
Sheringham Steam Railway & Thursford Collection
The North Norfolk Railway offers a 10.5 mile round trip by steam train through a delightful area of North Norfolk designated as being of outstanding natural beauty. But the North Norfolk Railway is much more than a train ride. There are historic stations, a museum of the railway’s history, a museum signal box and souvenir shops. The journey takes us from Sheringham to Holt where you can see ‘Broad Sidlinch’ a 300 square foot model railway. In the afternoon we visit the Thursford Collection where you can see the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs, hear Robert Wolfe one of the world’s leading theatre organists play the mighty Wurlitzer, explore the shopping village and enjoy a Back Stage Tour taking you through the cast dressing rooms and the huge store room of exquisite costumes and flamboyant head-dresses worn in the Christmas Spectacular shows.
Norwich is a medieval city full of culture, heritage and stunning architecture plus fantastic shopping. Home to over 1500 historic buildings within its city walls including two cathedrals, and an imposing Norman Castle there is plenty to discover and explore.
Sandringham is the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty The Queen and has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862. We include a tour of the house, museum and gardens. Sandringham is a friendly and informal place to visit, with knowledgeable guides in every room of the house and acres of beautiful gardens to explore while the museum houses extraordinary collections of royal vehicles, rare ceramics, photographs and memorabilia.
