DAY 3

Leaving West Runton by train, we travel southwards along the 'Bittern Line', named after a locally prominent bird species with a distinctive booming call. The line has been described as 'one of the 50 most scenic lines in the world' due to its natural beauty. At Hoveton & Wroxham we change onto the heritage steam Bure Valley Railway for an exciting journey through the picturesque countryside, beside the meandering river to Aylsham. After a break for lunch, we make the return steam train journey to Wroxham to join our scenic boat cruise on the Norfolk Broads to marvel at the variety of wildlife and the unique Broadland scenery of windmills, reeds, and pastures.

DAY 4

This morning we travel by train to Sheringham to join the North Norfolk Steam Railway. We ride the famed Poppy Line along the scenic coast to Weybourne and through the heathland to Holt in traditional carriages hauled by a vintage steam locomotive on one of the country's most scenic heritage railway lines. On arrival in Holt our coach transfers us to the magnificent Holkham Estate & Hall located in a stunning location on the north Norfolk coast. The 18th century Palladian style hall is nestled within 25 acres of rolling parkland and we can explore the impressive Marble Hall with its 50ft dome ceiling and a myriad of state rooms adorned with exquisite porcelain and art by the Old Masters.
