Historical Tours

Travel through time with a Norfolk Tours historical break

Walsingham Abbey

Walsingham Abbey in Norfolk

Norfolk and the surrounding areas offer a wealth of sites of historical interest. From churches to castles, stately homes to abbeys, I can help you build your own bespoke history holiday in England.

I’ve been described as a Time Traveller – I bring history to life for my guests. Read about some of my guests’ experiences on the Family History Tours page, and you’ll see what I mean! All it takes is a bit of imagination and an open mind.

Historical tours with Norfolk Tours are like no other. I can be your personal guide and tell you things that other tourists never get to hear. With a great choice of historical destinations in Norfolk, Suffolk and the surrounding areas, you won’t be disappointed.

Historical day trips

Day trips to stately homes, historic churches, Medieval castles, royal homes, magnificent cathedrals, visits to such places as Holt, Burnham Market, Norwich, King’s Lynn, Ely, Cambridge, Lavenham and tours of the beautiful countryside of East Anglia.

Norfolk has been home to man since the earliest times and we are lucky enough to be able to see the remains of previous inhabitants all over East Anglia. It may even be possible for you to take part in a real archaeological dig!

Norfolk’s Big Houses

It doesn’t take long for visitors to see that Norfolk has more than its fair share of big houses. Stately Homes, vast estates and large residences are to be found regularly during leisurely drives through the county. At Norfolk Tours, we don’t just focus on the mansions and stately houses but we also include the large farm houses and rectories, the estates and those aspiring to be estates.

For a taste of what you might see on a tour of local big houses, read my blog post of Norfolk’s most famous big house, Sandringham.

If you have any photographs of large houses which you would like to share with us, or if you would like more information about any of the houses featured, please contact me at glynn@norfolk-tours.co.uk

Historical accommodation

Accommodation could be in any type of property that you would like, from a converted farm building, a windmill, a typical C17th thatched cottage, all the way to a stately home.  Self-Catering, B&B, half board or all inclusive.
