Later inland to Holt, a small village with a big reputation for bric-a-brac shops, antiques and galleries. This afternoon to Wells-next-the-Sea - actually a mile inland but with a busy harbour. Back at the hotel we shall partake of a "Guess the weight of the Christmas Cake" competition and "Guess the baby photo" competition. This evening indulge in a full Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, including Norfolk Turkey and Christmas Pudding. Santa will visit and live music from a local singer takes us into the night.

Wednesday - A leisurely breakfast with the morning free to relax and maybe enjoy the hotels leisure facilities or make a trip into Cromer, famous for its Victorian Pier. Just after midday make the drive to Thursford to watch the awesome Christmas Spectacular Show starting at 2pm* (*may swap to evening). The hotel welcomes us back with tea/coffee and mince pies. After a 3 course dinner served at festively decorated tables you can try the Christmas Quiz.

Thursday - After breakfast we shall drive into Norwich, explore the maze of narrow cobbled streets. There is much new development too with excellent shopping malls. Return to the hotel in time for a farewell drinks reception followed by another delicious 3 course dinner and entertainment.
