Coach Holiday to Cromer
Cromer is on the edge of the North Norfolk Coast with wide open beaches, a traditional pier and awash with small local independent shops, a seaside town rich in its fishing heritage.
This morning we travel to Cromer with a stop in Kings Lynn on the way, The Hanseatic town of King's Lynn was one of England's most important ports from as early as the 12th century and this maritime past is still very much in evidence today. Fine old merchants' houses stretch down to the river between cobbled lanes and the elegant Custom House overlooks the harbour. The town's heritage is reflected in an amazing array of historic buildings, you should arrive at your hotel with plenty of time to settle in before your evening meal.
After breakfast we visit Hunstanton, The elegant resort of Hunstanton is the ideal base to enjoy Norfolk's superb coastline. Hunstanton, or 'Hunston' as it is known locally, is renowned for its unique striped cliffs and magnificent sunsets, made special by its position as the only west-facing resort on the East coast, This afternoon we move down the coast to Wells-next-the-sea, Wells is one of the most attractive towns on the North Norfolk Coast. From the long sweeping beach bordered by pine woodland, along the gentle harbour with small fishing boats and children fishing for crabs, past the shops on Staithe Street with not a chain store in sight, to the tree-lined park with its fine Georgian houses, quiet pubs and restaurants - Wells is an unspoiled seaside destination, waiting to be discovered.
Today Norwich market is our destination, Situated in the heart of Norwich on Gentleman's Walk, Norwich boasts the largest open-air market in the country, its rich heritage and traditional appearance is sure to charm you. You'll find a fantastic range of goods and service available; whether you're after clothes, children's toys, jewellery, household goods, flowers, keys cut or shoes mended, the market has it all!
Today has been put aside for you to enjoy your resort, Cromer is well known for its pier which has a lifeboat station & Pavilion Theatre, home to the UK's only remaining traditional end of the pier variety show. The pier is an enduring example of Victorian building, having withstood many storms, tidal surges and even an attempt to blow it up by the Government in WW2 to prevent the pier being used as a landing strip for enemy invaders! Close to the shore you will find 'Britain's Great Barrier Reef', the Cromer Shoals Chalk Bed, created in the Mesozoic Era when dinosaurs roamed. It is the longest in the world at 20 miles long and you can see it by swimming out and snorkelling. Unmissable on the Cromer skyline is the 160ft tower of 14th century church St Peter & Paul with vast stained glass windows commemorating Cromer's lifeboat crew, the most decorated in RNLI history. There's also a museum named after Henry Blogg, who served for 53 years on Cromer's lifeboats, who, with his crew, saved over 873 lives from the North Sea. Discover more history at the Lifeboat Museum & Cromer Museum.
We depart the hotel for our return journey to Lincolnshire, with a comfort stop enroute.
