Norfolk Lavender Harvest, Sandringham House & East Rushton Gardens
Explore idyllic Norfolk, touring past glorious farmland to reach delightful gardens and the famous Royal Estate. The Queen’s much-loved country retreat in the heart of the region, Sandringham House, is one of the highlights of the visit. We also discover Norfolk’s worldrenowned lavender farm where the English fields will be bursting with rows of purple colour this time of year. East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden is one of the UK’s best coastal gardens, which features perfectly framed views of Happisburgh Church and Lighthouse.
