Day trip to Norwich

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Saturday 6th July for a day trip to Norwich!

About Norwich
Norwich sits on the River Wensum and is the county town of Norfolk. From the 11th century until the industrial revolution in the 19th century, Norwich was the largest city in England after London, and one of the most important places in the kingdom.

It was settled by the Anglo Saxons around the river between the 5th and 7th centuries, where they named it Northwic.  It was also settled by the Normans shortly after their invasion in 1066 and they built a castle and a cathedral in the town.

The city has the dubious distinction of being the only English City ever to be
excommunicated by the Pope, following a riot between citizens and monks in 1274.

Aprox itinerary for the day
11:00am - arrive
11:30am - guided tour of the town
1:00pm - stop for lunch
2:30pm - tour of the cathedral
3:45pm - visit Colman's Mustard shop and Museum
4:30pm - head back or watch the Lord Mayor's celebrations

The guided tour of the town is £5 per person and the cathedral tour is £5.  If we have spare time, we could visit the castle keep and museum.

On the day that we are in Norwich, there are events happening across the town as part of the Lord Mayor's Show, among them:  a medieval market (open to 10pm), street procession at 5pm and live music.

We are aiming to get the 9:00am train to Norwich Station, its a 1h 50 minute train ride from London.  Groupsave train tickets are the cheapest option for the journey (£24 each).

We will be stopping near a local pub for lunch, but feel free to bring a packed lunch if you wish.

If you can't see us, please call.  Look out for the group sign at the station:








 

 

 

 

Hope to see you there!

    Excellent time spent in Norwich, just a big shame about the problems catching the train back which spoilt the trip for me. It certainly takes more than 10mins to walk back to station even without a parade and with parade it was impossible as we were on wrong side of the road - impossible to cross. What a shame to what would have been a brilliant day!

    • Anlyn

      Hi there, I have the same fares (28,50) for two single tickets. Do you think we can have group prices ? Thanks

      June 30, 2013

    • Robert

      GroupSave tickets are £24 each, so best to wait and purchase in groups of 4 when you turn up on the day.

      June 30, 2013

  • Anlyn

    Hi Robert, Can I ask which train we are aiming to get on the return to London? I need to know before buying my train ticket. Thanks.

    June 30, 2013

    • Robert

      You can come back at about 4:30pm or stay and watch the Lord Mayor's Celebrations round the town, some people will stay and some will head back.

      June 30, 2013

  • Lia P.

    Do we have to buy the tickets or we'll buy them together on the day?

    June 30, 2013

    • Denise

      Same here too - especially if the group price of four for two @ £24.00 still applies... Robert pls. advise asap :-)

      June 30, 2013

    • Robert

      It's cheaper to get the GroupSave 4 for the price of 2 tickets, which work out at £24 each when you arrive on the day.

    June 24, 2013

  • Jacqueline S

    Happy to join the walking tour and stick around for evening events

    June 24, 2013

  • Graham B.

    I can only seem to get a ticket at 9 a.m. from Liverpool Street to Norwich for £12, not £8. The return ticket for £8 seems OK. Am I missing something?

    1 · June 19, 2013

    • Robert

      This is correct, they have amended the prices since I last checked their website, so two singles = £20, cost is same whether booked in advance or purchased on day.

      June 19, 2013

    • Natalie

      Hi, the cost isn't the same booked in advance or purchased on the day from what I can see online. Definately best to book now I think.

      1 · June 19, 2013

  • Diane U.

    We'll go up earlier and leave later, so we'll meet you at the Norwich station for the days events.
