We travel to the resort of Cromer, on the north coast of Norfolk, notable for its end-of-thepier shows and even more so for crabs. After a break we continue to Sheringham, where we enjoy the sea air, a museum crammed with memorabilia and a train ride, this time a steam train on the ‘Poppy Line’, from Sheringham to Holt, a pretty Georgian market town with lots of little alleyways to explore.

Day 4 Sunday

A nostalgic steam train ride then a cruise on the Norfolk Broads. We begin at Aylsham where we join the Bure Valley Railway for the 9 miles ride to Wroxham. At Wroxham we join the boat for a cruise around the Broads. Afterwards we travel through some of the delightful Broads villages, such as Woodbastwick, with diminutive green and thatched cottages characteristic of an area designated as being of outstanding natural beauty.
