Norfolk – Cromer for the Crab & Lobster Festival

Staying at The Virginia Court Hotel

 

5 DAYS | 16th May 2018

Norfolk is a county of renowned scenic beauty, rich in historical treasures and abundant wildlife. Our base for the tour is Cromer set amidst the pleasant countryside of North Norfolk with its country lanes, villages of flint cottages, and steam railways. Also see the stunning Norfolk Broads, miles and miles of waterways weaving their way through this unique landscape.

Cromer was once a small fishing village and is now a bustling, family holiday resort. Attractive and full of character, Cromer’s narrow twisting streets in the town centre, colourful gardens, sandy beach and lively seafront promenade all make for a lovely holiday destination. The Virginia Court Hotel is in a quiet tree-lined avenue just three minutes’ walk from Cromer town centre, the seafront and pier. This stylish hotel offers a very pleasant lounge bar and restaurant and all bedrooms have a flat screen TV and courtesy tea tray. Please note that this hotel does not have a lift.
