The Merchant Of Norfolk
Please note that this railtour has now been cancelled
We are pleased to announce this re-arranged tour in association with UK Railtours, on Saturday 28th August 2021. We will be taking Clan Line on a summertime trip from Kings Cross to Norfolk. This will be Clan Line’s first ever visit to Norwich.
Our outward route takes us from Kings Cross, picking up at Potters Bar and Stevenage, then via Cambridge before turning east across rural Norfolk to Norwich, where we expect to arrive around lunchtime for a break of around four hours.
Norwich boasts award-winning shopping, lively streets, historic monuments, a gateway to the iconic Broads and is regularly voted as one of the top 10 places to live in England.
You may choose to visit Norwich’s magnificent Cathedral, one of the finest complete Romanesque cathedrals in Europe. With the second tallest spire and largest monastic cloisters in England, it houses more than a thousand beautiful medieval roof boss sculptures.
Also a popular attraction is one of the city’s most famous landmarks, Norwich Castle. Built by the Normans as a Royal Palace 900 years ago, the castle is now a museum and art gallery and home to some outstanding collections of fine art, archaeology and natural history (entry fee applies).
You will also have the option of taking a cruise on the Norfolk Broads.
Following our afternoon spent exploring Norwich or enjoying Wroxham and the Broads our return route will retrace that of our outward.
