Burghley House & Gardens

A Tudor mansion built by Queen Elizabeth’s Lord High Treasurer.
The building period of the house extended over a period of 32 years. We know from the State Papers that the east range was erected in 1555 and work continued on the east and south ranges until 1564. Sir William Cecil had purchased Theobalds Manor, Hertfordshire in 1563 and for a whole decade was fully engaged there in the building of his great ‘prodigy’ house.
See website for further details - https://www.burghley.co.uk
Cost: £35.00 for coach trip and entry to the house - this will include an introductory talk and tea/coffee and biscuits.
Contact Jill if you are interested in this trip. Friends and family welcome.

Norwich - The Great Hospital Tour and Lunch or Shopping trip

A coach trip to Norwich. An optional visit to the well-preserved medieval Great Hospital. Founded in 1249, 15 listed buildings which formed an area of sheltered housing and care facilities for aged priests, poor scholars, the sick and hungry since the Middle Ages. Situated in Tombland, the Cathedral area of Norwich. More information here http://www.greathospital.org.uk/
Coffee/ tea followed by a tour lasting one and a half hours by a Blue Badge Guide, followed by lunch.
The Great Hospital features in the popular book, "Tombland" by C.J.Sansom.
If you just want to have a day out in Norwich, Tombland is quite near the shopping area.
