Below is the itinerary for the holiday. Please click each day for more information.

Thursday 4th April

Today we will meet at our hotel for our welcome briefing before heading out for a group dinner where we will get to know each other for the weekend ahead.

Overnight in Norwich.

Friday 5th April

Our day starts off with a walking tour so we can get acquainted with the city of Norwich. We will spend 90 minutes hearing tales of the past and discovering what made Norwich the city it is today. We’ll walk the cobbled streets to find some of the oldest – and most haunted – parts of the city.

After working up an appetite, we’ll enjoy a fish and chip lunch at the Grosvenor Fish Bar, one of Norwich’s favourite chippies. Choose from a traditional plate of battered cod served up with beef dripping chips or go for fresh pie if that takes your fancy. Alternatively, try out their Chicky Chicky Bang Bang, 5 Quid Squid, or their Cheeky Cod.

After lunch, we’ll be taking a tour around the imposing Norwich Castle. Full of history, this medieval castle has witnessed everything from bloody battles to gruesome punishments of torture. Thankfully, nothing like that happens any more so we’re safe to discover the castle through a special sensory tour. You’ll get to handle original and replica objects from medieval times and truly get involved with the historic past of this fascinating building.

We hope you had a good lunch or a filling dinner as this evening we’re going wine tasting! That’s right, we’ll be going to Norfolk Wine School for a classic wine tasting where we’ll sample some of their most delicious wines. You’ll be taught how to sip, swirl and sniff six wines like a pro – don’t worry, you’ll get to drink a little of each too! Each of the wines comes from a different grape variety and region around the world, so we’ll have a truly international wine experience here in Norwich.

Breakfast and lunch included. Overnight in Norwich.

Saturday 6th April

Did you know that Norwich was once the next largest city after London? Growing from several small Saxon settlements, this city was a huge wool manufacturer in the Middle Ages and continued to be a huge powerhouse until the Industrial Revolution. At the Museum Of Norwich at the Bridewell, we’ll find out what made Norwich such an important city as we take a tour through Norwich’s industrious past on this exclusive sensory tour.

When lunch time comes around, we’ll get some food before making our way to Norwich Cathedral. Our private tour will enable you to get up close to the chapels and chantries, the Cathedral Cloisters and the intriguing Labyrinth in the grounds of the cathedral. After the tour, Evensong starts – this is when the Norwich Cathedral really comes alive as the choir sings and fills the space with music.

When our tour has finished, the rest of the day is yours to spend as you wish. Why not visit The Plantation Garden, a restored Victorian Garden where you can relax in a haven of tranquillity, or explore more of Norwich’s pretty streets? Alternatively, spend some time in the Tombland area where you’ll find the cobblestones of Elm Mill, lots of independent shops and plenty of cute cafés if you fancy some coffee and cake.

Breakfast included. Overnight in Norwich.

Sunday 7th April

After we’ve checked out of the hotel, and before we leave for home, there’s time for one more Norwich experience. All Sundays should start in a leisurely way and we’re going to be doing just that by boarding a boat on the Norfolk Broads. After breakfast, we’ll meet at the hotel for our coach journey to Wroxham where we’ll board our boat for our journey along the Broads. Sit on the top deck and feel the rush of the wind in your hair or take a seat on the lower level of the boat where you can listen to lively commentary from the skipper. Learn about the origin of the Broads, a place where bitterns make their home, otters play in the water and kingfishers dart around in flashes of colour. Drinks and snacks are available on board too, or you can even bring your own picnic with you. We’ll then transfer back to the hotel for approximately 2pm where you can enjoy more of Norwich or begin your journey home.

The end of this tour signals the end of our Traveleyes trip in Norwich. Depending on your travel time, you’re welcome to explore Norwich a bit more, or head back to somewhere you want to see again.

Breakfast included.

Single Supplement: £90

We recommend you arrive at the hotel from 3pm when check-in begins, where you will also meet your Traveleyes tour manager. We’ll meet for our welcome briefing at 5.30pm so please endeavour to arrive by this time.

On our final day, you must check out of your room by 12 noon. We’ll have secure space to store our luggage in the hotel before heading out for our Norfolk Broads boat journey. We expect to arrive back at the hotel at approximately 2pm, so we recommend you book your return journey home anytime after 3pm.

Travelodge Norwich Central is located approximately one mile away from Norwich Train Station. If you travel from the station in a taxi it will take ten minutes, or alternatively, it is a twenty minute walk.
