Why not also see the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs (extra charges apply)?

Then it’s time to take our seats for the fabulous Christmas Spectacular, a show which has entertained millions of visitors for over 40 years.

Relax at the hotel, enjoy one of Warner's many activities or facilities, or explore the area.

You may wish to join our optional excursion to Cromer, the ‘Gem of the Norfolk Coast’. Once a small fishing village and now a traditional seaside resort. 

Stroll down its Victorian pier, which has withstood many storms and even an attempt to blow it up by the Government in WWII to prevent it being used as a landing strip for enemy invaders! Why not sample the famous Cromer crab, a local delicacy?

You can also discover the town’s maritime history at the Lifeboat Museum and Cromer Museum.

Day 4


This morning we visit historic Norwich where, in this truly English city, it is still a pleasure to wander among the medieval streets, particularly cobbled Elm Hill, which is full of character. 

Norwich is the most complete medieval city in the UK, the only city in a National Park, and was England’s first UNESCO City of Literature.

It is of course also famous for Alan Partridge, Steve Coogan’s comedic character presenting Radio Norwich. 

There is also Norwich Market, open six days a week, as well as two shopping centres and four department stores.

Included Meals: Breakfast and Dinner           Included Highlights:Norwich
