Thursford & Ely

Our 2 day visit to Thursford & Ely was very successful

The first day we traveled to Heacham Manor Hotel in Hunstanton. Here we were greeted and made to feel very welcome. After an early evening dinner we set of for the Thursford Christmas spectacular show.
Not knowing what to expect I think we were all overwhelmed by the abundance of Christmas lights and the whole atmosphere of the set up.

The show is billed as an extravaganza of non stop singing, dancing, music humour and variety. .A fast moving celebration of the festive season. It certainly fulfilled all of this.
On returning to the hotel, we were offered mince pies and drinks. A fitting end to a fab evening.

The next day, after breakfast we set off for Ely. Here we had a guided tour of Oliver Cromwell House in the morning and Ely Cathedral in the afternoon. All the guides were excellent. with the amount of information they passed on to us. Ely cathedral was magnificent and Oliver Cromwell house full of lots of interesting rooms.

I think I can say that everything went to plan and we all enjoyed a varied 2 days with our friends in the D & D group.
