Village Trip

This year’s annual village trip will take place on Wednesday 5th July with a visit to both Wells-next-the-sea and Hunstanton.

We would like to thank North Luffenham village trust for sponsoring the coach and therefore as in previous years this trip is free to North Luffenham residents. Please note that places are limited to the coach capacity and therefore we recommend you confirm your seat as soon as possible.

Watch the boats go by in the picturesque harbour of Wells and uncover its fascinating history. Did you know that in the 1800’s Lifeboat Horses were trained to gallop into action at the sound of rocket fire? They would tow a 33ft lifeboat two and a half miles to its launch site at Holkham Gap! Look out for the partly submerged sculpture honouring these brave animals in the quay. Perhaps take a stroll along beach mile, enjoying views across the marshes and harbour from the raised path. Or alternatively wander around the unique little shops for some retail therapy.

Since 1946 Hunstanton has been a go-to seaside town, with much of its Victorian charm still visible today. The classic fun fair, Esplanade Gardens, pitch-and-put, beach and rock pools, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. Don’t forget the obligatory fish and chips too at either Hunstanton or Wells Quay side.

The coach will depart from The Fox at 9.15am prompt arriving in Wells at 11.30am, setting down and picking up at 2pm in Wells Coach Park. We will then arrive in Hunstanton at 2.45pmand head back home to North Luffenham at 5pm. The coach will have toilet facilities.  To book your place on the coach please email or call on 07769 322551. Should you have any queries regarding the trip please do not hesitate to contact Jason on 07773396153 or Alison on 07769 322551.
