Cromer 'Festive Sparkle'

Cromer 'Festive Sparkle'

Based at the HOTEL DE PARIS




4 DAYS FROM £249


The ever changing North Norfolk coastline features many award winning beaches, dramatic vistas, classis seaside resorts and picture postcard villages. Cromer was once a small fishing village patronised by royalty in the Victorian era and quickly became a distinctly upper class holiday resort. Today, the resort is still full of character with narrow, twisting streets and a lively promenade overlooking its predominantly sandy beach.


Our ‘Festive Sparkle’ weekend includes a sherry reception on arrival, a visit from Santa and entertainment each evening. Also included will be a ride aboard the North Norfolk ‘Lights Express’ Railway an amazing light show with illuminated festive scenes nestled within line side woodland, cuttings and stations – all from the comfort of plush carriage seats.


Our base in Cromer is the comfortable HOTEL DE PARIS which occupies a superb position directly overlooking the pier and beach. Features of the hotel include a games room, lounge/cocktail bar, restaurant with sea view and dance floor. All of the en suite bedrooms feature tv, hairdryer and hospitality tray and some have sea views at a small supplement – please see details below. There is a passenger lift to all floors but please note due to the age of the building there are steps/stairs to some rooms.


Departing Newark early morning, we travel east via an extended stop at Dobbies Garden Centre at King’s Lynn before continuing to our base in Cromer where will be greeted with a glass of sherry. Our evening meal will be followed by festively themed entertainment.

Departing after breakfast, we visit the award winning Wroxham Barns which is set in picturesque countryside close to the Norfolk Broads. See talented craft people at work, and browse shops which offer everything from unique gifts, stylish clothes and delicious foods. After returning to the hotel to freshen up we make the short journey to Sheringham late afternoon for perhaps the highlight of the stay – a return trip aboard the fully decorated North Norfolk ‘Lights Express’ as its steams its way through the countryside to Holt. Our evening meal will be served on our return to
the hotel.
