Craft Your Own Food, Drink & History Tour

Whatever your interest whether it be food, drink, history or a combination of them we can work with you to create your own bespoke tour. If you have some places in particular you want to visit we can arrange that and if you are not sure and would like me to suggest places then I can do that too.

All of our tours will be hosted by myself and using a private taxi cab driver in a London style Black Cab or if you prefer a walking tour in Norwich we can do that too. Whether it is for an hour or two or a full day, we can craft your own special personal tour in Norfolk.

We will collect you from 1 Quayside at 9am then travel to:

  • Castle Acre – this is a national trust site that contains the extensive ruins of a Norman Priory, dismantled in Tudor times.
  • From there we will travel to Kings Lynn museum to see the ancient Sea Henge.
  • After Kings Lynn we can head to Castle Rising. This is a fine Norman castle which is in some ruined condition.
  • Then we will head to Sandringham, here you have a choice to visit the House, Museum and Gardens or the Museum and Gardens only. I would suggest here to stop for lunch.
