Short stay with 2 elderly ladies

Any advise on entertaining 2 elderly ladies over a 4 night stay in late August ? One is registered blind but physically fit, the other physically weak and unable to walk far without multiple rest stops also tends to be of a negative disposition. Both enjoy live musical theatre, classical music and afternoon teas.

The steam train (Poppy Line) goes to Holt which is a lovely, elegant litle town. The station is a bit of a stroll from Holt centre but I think there is an old fashioned bus that goes back and forth.

Holt has some really nice teashops - we had a good lunch at Byfords.

The town also has an amazing deli, more like a Food Hall really, huge place called Bakers and Larners. So maybe you could get your ladies to choose some upmarket picnic food if the weather was good?

There's a small theatre in Sheringham itself.

Buying a local paper once you get there might give you some ideas for classical concerts in the area.

Priory Maze Gardens are nice and they have lots of benches that your party can rest on.

Felbrigg Hall (National Trust) isn't far away and has a teashop.

Not sure what your arrangements are, but there's some really good restaurants on the North Norfolk coast if you are looking for places to eat in the evening.

There.s a very good Norfolk 'expert' on here (Aardvark) who I am sure will give you more info.

Good luck!

Hi

The end of the pier show in Cromer is usually good for all age groups. You can probably get there by bus although it isn't far for a cab ride to be too expensive.
