Houses and History of Norfolk

Monday, 8 May 2017 – Friday, 12 May 2017

Over 20 members enjoyed a 5 day coach tour of Norfolk organised by Wendy Collett.  On the way we called in to see the magnificent Ickworth House in Suffolk, with its rotunda and collection of paintings and silver.  From our base in Norwich, we visited the Arts & Crafts House, Voewood, before enjoying a conducted tour of the National Trust’s Textile Conservation Studio at Blickling, where the conservation of two four-poster bed-hangings from Knole House was in progress.  We also visited two large Norfolk churches, including St. Agnes Church in Cawston.

After touring the magnificent Palladian home of the Coke family, Holkham Hall, we then called at the Jacobean Blickling Hall, voted the most haunted house in Britain.  The next day was spent  in Norwich where we visited the Cathedral and Castle Museum before a tour of the exhibits at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts on the University of East Anglia campus.  On our homeward journey we visited the Sandringham Estate.
