Turkey & Tinsel
in Great Yarmouth
8th - 12th November 2021

Our first festive tour is to the ever popular Norfolk town of Great Yarmouth. The town has a fabulous maritime heritage and a port famous for once being the hub of the herring industry.

Tuesday (alias Christmas Eve) will start with a visit to Norwich, in its Norman heyday second only to London in importance. Explore the city, and take the chance to visit the Castle or Tombland, a medieval area of narrow winding lanes lined with antique shops. Walk up Elm Hill, a picture postcard cobbled street lined with timber framed Tudor houses, so quaint it hardly seems real. We then travel North to Cromer, a charming Edwardian seaside resort, famous for its pier, succulent crabs and tall church tower.

Wednesday (alias Christmas Day) is a free day to enjoy Great Yarmouth, but be-fore you go out try your skill and guess the weight of the Christmas cake. Make sure you return to the hotel in time for the Christmas Day Traditional Grand Festive Lunch with a visit from Santa. You will also enjoy afternoon Tea and minced pies with games. In the evening there will be dinner followed by a Christmas Party.

Thursday (alias Boxing Day) will be a morning tour to Southwold, a charmingly old-fashioned seaside town with an atmosphere reminiscent of a more innocent age. Its pastel coloured cottages, fine Georgian house, lighthouse, delightful pier and iconic beach huts have made the town a deservedly popular destination, before we return for a pre-lunch glass of punch and the Grand Boxing Day Lunch. You will again have some free time in the afternoon before our dinner.
