Event Information

5 DAY TOUR OF NORFOLK, 16 to 20 JUNE 2019

Cost £509 pp sharing, £50 singles supplement.

We will be based in the excellent 3-star Links Country Park Hotel, just outside Cromer. Costs include gratuities and YPS administration costs, but exclude entry to NT, EH properties, and refreshments apart from dinner and breakfast at the hotel.

Outline Risk Assessment. Risks are generally expected to be consistent with coach travel and normal tourist attractions, and require some walking and climbing steps and stairs. Higher mobility will be required for climbing in and out of the small boats at Hickling Broad. Please note any special requirements on the booking form.

Please note- it has been agreed to separate the costs that are covered by JFG and YPS respectively, and YPS is modifying its Terms and Conditions to reflect this change -see https://www.ypsyork.org/groups/social-group/yps-activities-booking-terms-conditions-2/uk-multi-day-terms-and-conditions/ The booking form gives a summary, and requires a separate cheque for £35 payable to the YPS.
